It’s a little bit later than expected but at last I’m happy to announce the creation of CloudAve. Along with a great team of writers and researchers, Zoli Erdos as editor in chief and myself as editor will be creating what we hope will become the pre-eminent location for cloud computing and SaaS analysis and commentary. We will be specifically focusing on SaaS tools for business.
Originally slated to launch during the recent Office 2.0 conference, lots of busy-ness, a few technical issues and a general high degree of chatter at that time made us decide to delay until next Monday. We’re posting about it now to allow people to subscribe to our feed, all ready for our content to come floating over the pipes.
Our vision with CloudAve (in fact it’s part of our manifesto) is that it should start and remain ad free – in order to pay its way then Zoho has come on board and is sponsoring the site. Have no fear though – their sponsorship is completely hands-off when it comes to editorial independence – we’ll tell it like we see it – no matter who we catch in the crossfire!
So where to for Diversity? I’ll be posting a little less often here, and my posts will probably be more around the themes of New Zealand business, economic development, manufacturing, broadband issues and the like (in fact similar themes to where my blogging started) – my co-contributors to Diversity will continue to post here as and when they see fit.
I’ve also got a few interesting projects coming up in the next few months around the New Zealand telecommunications industry, small business development in New Zealand and the like. So stay tuned – there’ll still be stuff of interest.
But also head over to CloudAve, with the talent we have on board we’ll begin to amass a pretty compelling resource.
