I want to write yet another opinion piece blasting Marissa Mayer's change to Yahoo's work from home policy. Just kidding… I want to throw my two cents in about the other thing that is being over written about. If you've been following the news, you'll recognize that the intro to this blog entry is a subtle tribute to the Hall of Fame worthy goodbye letter that the CEO of Groupon sent to his employees upon being dismissed.

IBM just released a new whitepaper summarizing their experiences with transitioning their internal business environment to the cloud. One of their takeaway points is something that I've had to present to clients and friends on numerous occasions recently. It's that the "cloud" is not just like getting a better and faster computer.

This is old news, but it bears posting because people continue to fall vicitm to it. There's a few companies well known for sending people bogus domain name registration reminder notices through the mail. The best known one is the Domain Name Registry of America, but by the time you read this, their name may have changed or a copycat sham business may be doing the same dirty deeds.

If you've ever researched a domain name that you wanted, but waited to register it only to find out a day or two later that it's been claimed by some mysterious company, read on. There are some shady players who are running a domain name registration scam that tries to buy the domain names that you want so they can sell it back to you at exorbitant rates. This isn't the old practice of cyber-squatting that was common in the boom years. This is far more pervasive.
