WHIR Event Washington DC – 2013

August 22, 2013 — Leave a comment

The Web Hosting Industry Review, or simply the WHIR for short, provides industry related news, reviews, webinars, and events like local networking parties. I highly recommend getting on their mail list if for no other reason than to know when these industry events pop up. Free drinks and cool tech people; it’s always a good time!

This year was very exciting. ServInt wanted to represent as much as possible, so as many of our employees showed up as possible. In fact, a bus was rented for the evening to shuttle everyone around! As always, there was a lot of good drinks to be had, but also a lot of great experiences. This was my 3rd year going to these, 6 years in the industry, but for many of our techs in attendance, it was their 1st on both accounts. I think they had a ball.

I also got to meet two other prominent owners from a couple other web hosting companies in the area. This was most exciting of all; normally we’re the only actual web host at the DC events. Special shout-out to PJ Taei from WebNet Hosting. It was very cool to sit and talk industry talk with another exclusive web hosting provider.

A linux web hosting administrator, a professional production sound man, and a renegade cop without nothing left to lose.... Ok, that last part is made up. In all seriousness, my passion in life is to help people; whether that be with help running their sites or with their productions. The name 'Boom Shadow' was given to me by a great group of filmmakers called Star Wipe Films. back in 2005 and has been with me since. I hope my site is helpful to you, and if there's something you need, drop me a line!
