Google has unveiled the re-worked JotSpot
and I am loving the new Google Docs “Sites”
feature. This is truly a Microsoft Sharepoint killer. I am going to step out on a limb here and predict that Microsoft Office Suite will find itself playing second fiddle to Google Docs in less then 18 months. Check out my VendAsta post here for proof
! If you own Microsoft Shares I say SELL!

… And were back! I had a brief blogging hiatus as I was busy with far more important things. Things more important than anything else. In fact, I just had the best Valentines present I could ever ask for! Coni and I gave birth to Elaine Jeannette King. She was born Valentine’s day, which, coincidentally is also my mother’s birthday. She was born with a minimum of fuss at 13:24, weighing 7lbs 1 oz and measuring 19.5″ long. I think she is perfect! I have had a lot of requests to put up some photos. Instead, I thought I would give you peak at her less than 1 minute after she was born!
Here she is!
Daddy Teasing Elaine only minutes after she is born!

What more can I say about this.
February 7, 2008
Going to work shouldn’t be this much fun. I was thinking about our environment at VendAsta last night and trying to put my finger on what makes it so fun. Why is it so easy to get up in the morning and come to work? It’s definitely the people you work with. That said, it sure is easy to say the work TEAM. But what does a TEAM really mean? There are a lot of definitions and the word can be applied many ways. For example one definition of a team
is “Two or more draft animals used to pull a vehicle or farm implement”. Around here, however, our definition of a team
is more like this: ” a group individuals who interact dynamically, interdependently and adaptively to achieve specified, shared, and valued objectives in an environment of respect and trust.”
Unfortunately, there are way too many companies out there where the “Team” definition feels more like the first and less like ours. It is easy to say the word “Team” but it is truly special when it is reflected by reality. So I have come to the conclusion that the fact we have a real “Team” is the reason we are having so much fun around here.
