Moved to San Francisco

Since a couple of weeks I'm living in San Francisco, and working for the San Mateo office of Backbase. So I was pretty busy finalizing work in Amsterdam, moving my stuff out of my apartment, and so on. And on the other end of the ocean I had to find an apartment, buy a car, get a cell phone, bank account, credit card, etcetera. And obviously we had to get the office started, together with a team of local Backbase employees. In short: a busy time.

There is a lot of demand for AJAX software in the US market, and there are not that many vendors. Especially the new pricing of Backbase ($1995 per CPU, one-time fee) appeals to many prospects. So we made a good start with our office.

From now on I will try to write more frequently on this blog, and on the Backbase weblog. There are still several interesting AJAX topics to cover, and I will focus mainly on performance and networking issues, in combination with AJAX.

By the way, I just read an interesting post by Alistair Croll which explains why AJAX applications issue more HTTP requests, and often download more data, while still being more responsive than traditional applications.

Incidentally, the Bitcurrent link has moved to http://www.bitcurrent.com/?p=10 since the launch of the new blog. Sorry for any inconvenience.
