A QUIET SOIREE away from the bustle of New York was held at ServerCast Communication's (http://www.servercast.net) offices overlooking the calming Hudson on May 16. Executive Vice President Peter Kirwan and I convened over "The Tub of Technology." Usually filled with AOL disks (please send donations so they can fill it) this night the porcelain-lion-footed bathtub was filled with iced beers and sodas. As the name may imply, ServerCast specializes in heavy server side management. Depending on the project, they use programs like Firefly, Ichat or NetGravity. Their clients are either typical Internet savvy new media companies (SiteSpecific, Yoyodyne) not happy with their current server, or traditional companies who want them to manage a whole project. For some
projects, ServerCast will partner with an outside design firm to handle those aspects. As I prepared to leave I admired the essential-office-accessory-lava-lamp and the 3-D picture of Dean Martin and
Jerry Lewis sitting with a pile of money.
