- to a breakout box – which would have MIDI, CV, Triggers and Gates and even ‘samples’
- to a Serge Synthesizer
- to a couple of TV screens – one displaying the iPhone (which we’re having the Cola conversation with) and the other screen displaying imagery (video, photos, websites) coming off of a laptop (or 2nd iPhone)
Yes I have been blogging – since the beginning. My original blog can be found at: Marc.Blogs.it. There are also archives that go – all the way back, but the links are broken. Yes I’ll fix that – one day.
My nephew Dane Knecht has been working at startups his whole career – so when he told me he had moved to San Francisco – and was working at a ‘Cloud Security’ firm – I was incredibly excited for him. I then saw his company – CloudFlare - listed on the OpenCo list of open houses – so I stopped by to see what CloudFlare was all about.
1M websites covered – for free. Several billion hits – per month.
These dudes and dudesses and figured out how to do a software Firewall and CDN which helps get rid of DoS attacks and all sorts of ugly, negative, security breaches, hacks, etc. Not too shabby – I’d say. The basic service is free and they have a premium $20 a month model.
I heard Michelle (one of the co-founders) present during OpenCo and she reminded me of a younger Kim Polese.
This is a company to watch!
I later had dinner with Dane and ran into the CEO Matt – so I can personally say – “these people rock!”
Final note – I can still remember a 4 year old Dane being enamored of the Mac 512k we had. His grandfather funded MacroMind and I’ll always have warm memories of those days – back in Houston.
