This post is part of an occasional roundup of things that I read and found interesting. There won’t be a lot of comment from me, but hopefully you will find the links useful. Enjoy!
Interesting stuff I came across recently:
Could the Freemium model work in legal services? – I suspect most readers of this blog have already read this article. If you haven’t, I insist you go read it now. If you have read this article before, you should perhaps go back because there’s a really good discussion in the comments now.
Optimal Workloads for the Cloud – Bit of a geek post this one, but it captures beautifully in four simple graphics the kind of server demand profiles that are best suited to cloud computing. If you work in IT, this is a link worth saving.
Darwin’s Finches, 20th Century Business and APIs – An awesome slide deck drawing parallels between evolution theory, successful 20th Century business models and how you can apply those rules in a 21st Century, Web 2.0, Cloud Computing world.
