Have you ever walked into a restaurant or shop that oozes passion and enthusiasm? Can you feel when a product is seeping with high quality?

How can one bring the spirit of innovation and quality to what we do? My tour of the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Distillery in Kentucky made an impression on me, I fell in love with the ethos of it.

A 3rd generation man shows me the ropes on the tour. IT and Bourbon. How do they relate? Watch the video and let me know what you think. – Bill

The hype is out of control, however the options are compelling when it comes to your upgrade to Exchange 2010. On-prem versus Off-prem? How does a CIO decide? Part of it is philosophical and part of it is pragmatic. Some pragmatic issues are addressed on this video, although at the end of the day, one still must ask: “Does my company make money with email or are there other applications that I want to invest my staff’s talents and resources in?” Remember the ADAM principle, Alternative Delivery Acquisition Model. This is all the Cloud is about.
