We had a great trip to New York for the Interop conference last week. Located right down the aisle from the Cloud Zone Theatre (where I gave my presentation on user experience in the cloud), our booth received a ton of foot traffic, allowing for many great conversations about DéjàClick with Mobile Monitoring as well as other Web performance management challenges and solutions.
Many of the conversations I had were with some well-known technology media attending the event. On Wednesday afternoon, I met with Robert Scoble, also known as the Scobleizer. I'm sure many of you recognize the name, as he is one of the most widely-read bloggers in the technology space. During our conversation Robert asked me, "Who needs Web performance monitoring? Does my little blog?" You can get my answer to that question, and hear more about what the cloud means for website and app performance, in the full interview below.
I appreciate Robert taking time out of his hectic schedule to meet with me, and also for the bit of love he showed on his Twitter stream.
Now I'll repay the favor: Be sure to follow Robert's tweets at @scobleizer.
Earlier in the day, David Berlind, Editor in Chief for TechWeb, visited our booth to film a video demo of our mobile website monitoring capabilities for his audience at InformationWeek. David is also the Chief Content Officer for TechWeb, so making sure that Web apps are performing well and quickly for users is of particular interest to him. I just hope I was able to convince him to switch to AlertSite for his site's website performance monitoring. ;)
Here's the video. Make sure you follow David and TechWeb on Twitter as well at @dberlind and @techweb.
I also had a chance to sit down and brief a couple of editors from TMCnet. My conversation with CEO Rich Tehrani was actually recorded and shared as a video on TMC's site, so be sure to check that one out as well. We talk, of course, about Web performance and the importance of monitoring the user experience, but also about the rapid growth in the use of mobile.
Don't forget to follow Rich on Twitter as well at @rtehrani.
