The recent outage with Amazon might have seemed like the first real hiccup of the cloud.. but we’ve been living with the cloud for many years and over 10 years ago, DoubleClick had a cloud hiccup too.

I also remember scrambling as we took the tags down from all our publisher sites.. ahh, good times.

My former HR Partner, Cathy Hawley, has been at ReturnPath for years.. a few months back, long-time clicker, Jane Ritter, joined ReturnPath too.. I’ve known about this, but hadn’t posted, mostly since I don’t have a real system and just post shit. And Ken Takahashi has also been there for a long time.
Also, Naomi Kagan (I forgot who told me this) finally got wise and departed Atlas/Microsoft and is now at start-up Mixpo.
Lastly, the poor folks at Epsilon – and there are many – have been having an un-fun April, dealing with the barrage of press surrounding their unauthorized system access.. I know I’ve gotten emails from 10+ companies alerting me about the incident.

I wasn’t there, but wish I had been.. Apparently at todays Daily Heath Check meeting, Mehdi dialed in.. Since he’s been gone for 2+ years, it’s pretty funny; but I’m sure some folks remained nervous as he told them of the issues he needed resolution on 🙂
