It's been quiet around here, cricket chirpin' quiet. I've not been idle though, let me tell you.
Six months ago I was seduced by the bright, shiny halls of New Relic's office in Portland. I am running the team that is inventing a new software product - real-time mobile app performance analytics. In a nutshell, people who write apps for iPhones, iPads, Kindles, and Android phones use our software to understand whether or not the app that's running on YOUR phone is smooth and pleasant, or pissing you off because it's slow and keeps telling you there are problems with the server.
Here's what GigaOm and VentureBeat had to say on launch morning, and if you're curious about all the techie gore here's my product announcement on the New Relic blog (pardon the bad puns, marketing made me add them).
