Being Acquired

Posted on January 27, 2015

Almost every tech company dreams of being acquired by a bigger and better funded company. Besides proving that what you’re doing is worth it, and that your team/services are of value, it usually means a payday for time invested building the company. TechXpress, the company I worked for over 7 years, was acquired by SpendSmart Networks in September of 2014 for $1.6 million. TechXpress had two divisions: Web Services and IT Services. SpendSmart acquired the Webs Services division, while IT Services was purchased by Tim Synder, then chief technology officer of TechXpress.

Limits of Imagination

“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? And then people tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pesthole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When I see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.”
