Recently, so much ink has been spilt on our VC-backed brethren racing for the cash-conserving hills. Why they weren’t shooting for revenue and profitability from day one is beyond us.
Joyent believes when a company is built to be profitable from day one, market context is much less meaningful than the ability to expend effort and succeed. As companies move from CapEx to OpEx, a flight to quality in operations and product, companies such as Joyent are sure to benefit. GigaOM and the NYT picked up today on our success in a down market. Congrats to my fellow Joyeurs!
