There are a lot of interesting things going on with folks I know and I thought that this would be a great spot to showcase some of those great things.  I believe that when someone has a great idea, the rest of the world needs to hear about it.  If you and I go out for a coffee and we talk about something great you are doing and you want people to know about it, expect to see it here.

JDRF Cyclebetes

Stephen Beamish is a colleague in my office who is taking it to the streets in an effort to help fight diabetes.  A couple years ago, he found out his daughter had type 1 diabetes, which is a condition that although you can live with, is one of those things that tends to take over your life; not a day goes by without it impacting their entire family in some way.

Steve is a great guy and doesn't tend to take much sitting down...except this time, maybe its on a bicycle seat.  His goal is to raise $2500 to support diabetes research and he's doing it by cycling in cyclebetes.  Check out his donor page @ or just follow him on twitter @

One of my contacts runs a local company that provides a hosted exchange solution that provides small and medium businesses with email services for a per seat monthly rate.  This is brilliant, as it gives a low cost alternative to running your own email system and the infrastructure and staff involved.  The great thing about this is that you can hook up blackberry services (BES) so that your blackberry is in sync all the time.  I think the best part is the SPAM filtering services they provide.
