The longest year, the shortest 365 days

  1. Congrats Om. It has been a great ride so far and looking forward to many more. I am addicted to this website to the level of my wife threatening to leave me if I continue to follow your news and comments more frequently.

  2. Congrats on the big milestone.

    I’ve been a long time follower of GigaOm. From a small blog with just one writer and very little noise; to the worst period in the second half of last year when there was so much noise being published on the site (sorry for the honesty) that it became a burden for me to filter it out, to a more balanced, focused and well written blog.

  3. Congrats GigaOm team. Your blogs are very insightful. I would like to add that some of your sister sites have a deluge of articles and it’s difficult to keep track of all the posts. So, I like your “What’s on GigaNet” posts which have links to the important posts from the sister sites.

    And btw, looking forward to attending your panel event at the IIT 2007 event tomorrow.

  4. The biggest lesson for me personally: the start-up life is non-stop: no pauses, no breaks, no time to stop and smell the roses.

    You’re better off not smelling the roses Om. My parents always said “Never smell the roses, for they always have flies that you end up inhaling that give you the high and low of coke”. You keep your steady pace sir, and everything else falls into place.

    On a side note, I certainly hope the sales folks you’re hiring don’t change GigaOm we’ve come to know and love. No offense to anyone.

  5. What a funny guy you are, Om!

    While you’re kind to be thanking us readers…it is us who should be (and are) thanking you…

    So thank YOU…Happy Birthday…and a big wish for many more to follow!

  6. Congrats Om and happy one year anniversary!
    GigaOm is a great read, especially the telecom analysis, and the changes since you struck on your own have all been for the better. It’s also the best UI around and the easiest to read from my blackberry. I’m a big fan.
    Keep up the great work!

  7. Congrats giga team…..

    nice work done….this last year has been very inspiring.. personally you have given me many new insights and ideas to work on start-up…

    The detail analysis of a business model or a new start up makes you different..

    Though i m disappointed that content related to India has gone down over years…There is so much start up activity going on here which is not noticed…

    Looking forward to many eventful and inspiring years…….

  8. 🙂 Congratulations to Om and his team. 🙂

    And remember: The world is bigger than the US. There are interesting stories and advanced technologies in other countries too.

    I would e. g. love to understand the Asian stuff, but cannot read Chinese nor Japanese. Also the European (wireless) broadband business is always worth looking.

    Maybe you could hire more correspondents abroad until the next anniversary?

  9. I have been a reader of your column in Business 2.0 and your blog for the past few years. I would like to wish you all the best and thanks for the brilliant insight you provide.
