General Update on *stuff*

May 20, 2005 By: Andre Category: Ping Identity

Ok, I’m completely delinquent in updating this blog! Heck, I barely have time to go to the bathroom these days. I actually don’t notice even breathing until I’m in the car going home lately. Here’s what’s happened in the past few weeks.

1. we closed our B financing at Ping. Phew. That was a bit harder than I had expected. Good news is, we got our #1 draft-pick, Draper Fisher Jurvetson to lead the deal.

2. Eric got us named to 1 of the top 10 startups to watch in Network World Magazine

3. We held a succesful, sold out, 4th annual Digital ID World last week. I’m a bit exhausted by it all, but probably not so much as Phil and Kathi, who did all of the heavy lifting for the event.

I’m spending most my time on the road these days, and tyring to figure this whole identity thing out. I’m hot on the trail of a reference architecture for federation… and making some progress. I promise to do a bit more updated…
