Deepest Darkest Utah!

26 Oct

I’ve spent this week in Provo, Utah, with the guys from Omniture. Very, very impressive setup and we happened to be there the day they did their Q3 earnings call. All good news, so many happy faces around. The town itself is small, and has a very high Mormon population: there seems to be a chapel every couple of blocks. Everyone is very polite and there’s not much boozing.

The product is extremely impressive, and they look to have a real solid, long term plan. Clients are joining in droves, so they obviously agree. I’m optimistic that our relationship with them is going to be a good one: they seem like they’ll be pretty straightforward to work with. Don’t seem like the BSing sort…

Had dinner in a super cool restaurant in Sundance, the little town that gave the film festival its name. Stunningly beautiful: so much so that Robert Redford bought a load of the surrounding land to prevent further development.

    Hey, you doing much travelling for work these days? I’ll be in DC and VA from the 11th until Thanksgiving for work. Ever make it eastside? And I don’t mean eastside LA.

    Heh. I’ll be over in NY the week after next, and prob in DC sometime in December. Not much use to you though, eh.

    You gonna be in DC itself?

    Yeah, in DC on the 11th, down to C’ville for a couple of days, back to DC on the 17th, then back to Oz on the 22nd. I do have to kill 5 hours in LA on the morning of the 11th if you’re in that part of the world…
