TechTarget Acquires The Brian Madden Company

From VMBlog

In case you hadn’t heard the news yet, The Brian Madden Company has just been acquired by TechTarget, Inc.  Madden has been covering Citrix technology for a while now, even before the whole Virtualization craze when it was just plain old application presentation — not quite as cool as today’s application virtualization bucket. 

If you have any skin in the game of desktop virtualization, I’m sure you’ve heard of Brian Madden, his BrianMadden.com web site, or his independent deskop virtualization conference held in Chicago – The BriForum event.  Madden is also known for publishing virtualization books such as the popular VI3: Advanced Technical Design Guide from Herold, Oglesby, and Laverick.

I’m happy to announce that we have been acquired by TechTarget. This is really cool because it means that Gabe and I can focus 100% on writing and interacting with the community, and we don’t have to be weighed down by all the operational minutia of running a business.

For those of you unfamiliar with TechTarget, they’re an IT Media Company. They have something like 60 IT-related websites, including IT Knowledge Exchange, NotebookReview.com, LabMice.net, and all those "Search" news sites (SearchWinIT.com, etc.) They also host about 300 events and conferences per year. (I actually attended one in DC today about desktop virtualization, with presentations from Mark Minasi and Barb Goldworm. Very cool!)
