HostingCon 2010

Today is our first day back from HostingCon 2010 in Austin, Texas. I thought I would dedicate this blog post to telling everyone what we did down in Austin. I will warn you now, there is a bit of colorful language in this post. I apologize in advance, however, the use of this language is absolutely necessary in order to properly depict some of the events that took place.

Douglas Hazard and myself arrived in Austin on Sunday evening. We checked into the hotel and then proceeded to find a bar to drink at. Now, I’m originally from Minnesota so you would think I would have remembered this about the Midwest ( or really anywhere other than New York and LA for that matter ), however, I did not. Sunday is the Sabbath and therefore, everything is closed by midnight. New York City doesn’t care if it’s Sunday, Christmas or Rosh Hashanah, there are always cool bars open for drinking. We headed over to the Four Seasons and met up with Jason Silverglate, Josh Ewin, Matt McCormick and Sal Poliandro from DedicatedNOW. Luckily, Jason had pre-ordered me a beer so I didn’t have to sit there watching everyone else drink. Since the bar had just closed, 1 beer was the cap for Sunday night. Needless to say, I got a good night sleep.
