Taking the ReadyTalk Blog Personally

This is my first blog post. Ever. It's exciting to have the opportunity through ReadyTalk to become a participant in the big wide world of social media and I'm looking forward to figuring out what the heck that actually means, one of these days.

I have a very personal connection to ReadyTalk. Dan King, ReadyTalk's co-founder and CEO, and I were college roommates for 4 years at the University of Colorado where we both studied engineering when we couldn't find anything better to do. Through Dan, I met his brother Scott, ReadyTalk's other co-founder and VP of Sales and Marketing. I've stayed close to Dan and Scott over the years and have tremendous respect for them, particularly whenever we go jogging together. They were both on CU's cross country team and continue to take running very seriously, so I try not to do that too often.

In the early days of ReadyTalk, my wife and I decided to invest in Dan's and Scott's new company. We didn't do it hoping to get rich. We did it because we could tell they were passionate about ReadyTalk, and besides, we were afraid they and their employees weren't getting enough to eat back then. In any case, it was a modest investment, but it makes it interesting for me to keep up on ReadyTalk and their business.

So that's what I'm going to be doing - taking a look at ReadyTalk and the web conferencing industry from my uniquely personal perspective, and sharing what I come up with here in the ReadyTalk blog.

I hope you'll enjoy my posts and maybe even get something out of them. Personally, I think it will be fun. Who knows, if this blogging thing goes well, maybe I'll even get a Facebook page.
