| Over 2008, we have seen our employee ranks increase by 30% and demand for
| our marketing automation suite has never been higher. It is evident that
| during times of economic uncertainty, now more than ever, marketers are
| hungry for a low-cost, high-return, and easy-to-use product in the marketing
| automation space. So the build-out continues with key hires in executive
| positions and game-changing product innovations in 2009.

Rails Guides Wants You

,----[ Quote ]
| If you haven’t looked at the state of Rails documentation lately, it’s time
| to look again. The new Ruby on Rails Guides page includes 14 separate guides
| for Rails developers, with topics ranging from “Getting Started” to routing,
| security, testing, and debugging. That’s over 70,000 words of help content
| for Rails users that didn’t exist two months ago when we launched the Rails
| Guides project.

| When I’m looking for open source economic theories my go-to guy is Bruce
