As you probably heard, Gavin Bowman is moving on to bigger and better things and I’ve taken over stewardship of the Micro ISV Digest. For now, very little is going to change, except the space between micro and ISV. If you’re announcing the public debut of a microISV, startup or have other news to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the word digest in the subject.
