We’re growing by leaps and bounds here at Accellion. We had a breakout 2010 and the momentum continues today. Since the beginning of the year we’ve barely had time to catch our breath. We just wrapped up our Q1 Customer Conference last week where we shared with our customers the new products and features coming out in 2011.
But I’m officially taking a few moments to celebrate our 1,000th customer win and to thank our loyal customers for their continued support.

Promoted as the biggest contest of "man vs. machine" since Deep Blue took on Kasparov, this week's Jeopardy face-off betwen Watson, IBM's computer creation, and the show's previous grand champions is great entertainment.

It’s been a whirl-wind couple of weeks here at Accellion. Last week we launched our latest product – the Accellion iManage Plug-in, and this week we are showing it to Law Firm CIOs during LegalTech in New York. As a product marketing manager, nothing is more exciting than seeing a product get launched. After weeks and sometimes even months of planning, brain-storming, and writing, the whole world gets to see what we have in store for them.

I just read the recent "Opinion" from the European Data Protection Supervisor on the communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions. Are you still with me? Hang in there, because it's easy to get lost in this story.
On January 14, 2011 the European Data Protection Supervisor, Peter Hustinx, gave his written opinion regarding the Review of the Data Protection Legal Framework and he gave it a qualified thumbs up - I think?

We've had an ongoing debate at Accellion on what is the largest size of file that can be sent via Accellion file transfer. Yesterday's WSJ article entitled "Fastest Growing PR Stunt: Get Into Guinness Records" settles the discussion - we're going for the record.
