IBM buys Systemcorp

Busy week for M & A -- CA buys Netegrity, IBM buys SystemCorp, and EMC buys Dantz. Wow, lots of founders got rich!!

Interesting notes about the IBM and EMC buys...companies looking to consolidate their software purchases and middleware infrastructure can focus even more attention on IBM and EMC, though I believe EMC will continue to struggle a bit in defining the role of its software portfolio in its overall business strategy (of course, everyone knows that software sells hardware, but with growth in the enterprise storage market slowing to almost flat, EMC's looking for new revenue and growth opportunities).

My First Google Wave

I got my invitation to Google Wave on Friday and finally had a few minutes to check it out last night and today.  Started my first wave on "cloud computing."  Seems fitting to discuss the topic in a new, cloud-based collaboration platform.  Of course, I continue to have dialogs on cloud computing in other media, but couldn't resist trying out Google Wave with such a fitting topic.

Right now I've only got about 5 colleagues in Google Wave along with me, but that'll grow over the next few days.  I'll post more observations as my community grows and I have more reasons to work in the environment.

Meanwhile, I'm in it and learning my way around.  Stay tuned!
