I was laying awake early this morning thinking about Oracle.
Newry is a small town on the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic. A town that was only granted the status of city in 2002, and a town that has a population of around 30,000 people. A town that also has big ambitions: to be the next big European startup hub.
Wait a second, wait a second, wait a second. I don’t think the world is adequately excited about what happened this week with Microsoft. This happens often nowadays; the world is never as excited as it ought to be about big news coming out of Redmond. The giant announces something huge, it gets a few links on Techmeme, and then we all go on pretending that the tech world revolves around Cupertino and Mountain View. Which it often does, but still.

Last week, after around six months of toiling away on product, pimping it to bloggers, and engaging with his startup's 28,000 beta sign-ups, Wahooly co-founder Dana Severson clicked a button to transfer Wahooly's files from a development server to a launch-ready server. The process was supposed to take 24 hours, ending at the precise moment the countdown clock on Wahooly's site reached zero--launch time--and coinciding exactly with a TechCrunch story and a wide email blast.
I've been digging around for a few days about Oracle, trying to figure out if another $1 billion-plus acquisition is imminent following yesterday's news about Oracle buying Taleo for $1.9 billion. Instead, I stumbled onto another piece of news: Workday is currently talking to bankers about going public.
We're thrilled to announce our next big hire: Greg Kumparak -- former Mobile Editor at TechCrunch -- is joining PandoDaily.
