So it’s Thanksgiving. And it makes perfect sense that the only regular CloudAve writer who ISN’T based in the US should get to have a holiday as well… even if he’s actually going to be at work today (Thanksgiving isn’t a New Zealand holiday although, as anyone who has visited here will attest to, we sure have lots to be thankful for in our country).

So there you go – no mention of cloud computing, PaaS offerings, SaaS solutions, integrations, VC funding, pricing models or any of the other minutiae that normally graces these pages.

Rather a thank you to you all… Thanks to Zoho for backing CloudAve these past 14 or so months. Thanks to Zoli for keeping us all in line. Thanks to all the permanent and guest writers. The active commenters and the silent lurkers.

Thanks to the other more populous tech blogs who took our stories and used them on their own spreads, imitation is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery.

In keeping with the Oscar’s speech ethos it only seems right to thank my parents, my family, God (whomever and wherever she may be) and Steve Jobs (although many would say the last two are one and the same).

Best I finish now and let you all get back to your turkey and whatever other delicacies you have going.. me, I’ll enjoy the balmy early-summer weather and perhaps a BBQ

See you on the other side – ciao!
