(October 30, 2007) In 1993, I
started interbiznet. In the beginning, the company was focused on
marketing and recruiting. It was imagined as a consutling business. The
internet was brand new and the business would help people integrate it
into their businesses
years, interbiznet published a
the Bugler and the
Electronic Recruiting News each day. We've published a
routine industry analyses
and tons of white papers. We
believed, then as now, that content is the key.
Colleen Gildea has been my partner at
interbiznet for the entire span of its existence. Most people don't know
that she was one of the first (if not the first) advertising salespeople
on the internet. While I believe that she actually sold the first online
banner ad, there are those who would disagree.
Colleen nurtured and grew the business
over the years. Wearing every imaginable hat, she made the business work
when it shouldn't by being willing to do the things required by the
moment. I distinctly remember seeing her driving, well, racing, a
truck full of mailers across the Golden Gate Bridge to make a post
office deadline. She's been the graphic designer, editor, bookkeeper,
html goddess, salesperson, customer service czar, chief cook and bottle
As some of you might have noticed, I've

I was surprised and pleased when Colleen
pulled together a proposal to buy me out. By clearly marking out the
lines of ownership, she'd be able to increase her return while gaining
the freedom to innovate as she sees fit. I welcomed the opportunity and
am happy to announce the change.
From today forward (and actually a
little bit in the past), Colleen Gildea is the owner and operator of
interbiznet. While my writing will appear here for the forseeable
future, I am now a contractor. Colleen has her plans which I am sure she
will unveil in the coming weeks and months.
I'm exited about both my prospects and
the future of interbiznet. It's a bit like giving up a baby. Learning
how to separate myself from the company will take some interesting
levels of effort.
I want to take a moment to thank all of
the long time readers who have followed our comings and goings over the
years. Without your feedback and interest, interbiznet would never have
been the shining star that it was and is.
If you are not a long term observer, the
initial changes will be subtle. My writing will still be here.
