This post is dedicated to the many mentors I had and still have in my career. I had and one in particular though who showed me the ropes and taught me how to build a strong hosting company from the ground up. You know who you are. Thanks.
To often it is believed with tongue in cheek that everyone in the field of technology relating to web hosting simply popped out of the chute, jumped off the table and said to the doctor, “which way to the nearest data center?” This could not be further from the truth. Web hosting and technology by nature is capable of creating a reality distortion field around itself and can appear to be a seemingly insurmountable peak to those considering entering this field. True, it can be a daunting task to learn a field full of jargon and bizarre sounding acronyms with a language better described as “geekspeak,” which Gordon Moore of Intel considered to be concern for technology in society that would lead to awhole lot of engineers and then well… basically everyone else.
