This afternoon Lyris acquired their customer SparkLIST. (Lyris both sells email list host software to other firms, and also hosts clients themselves.) Lyris CEO John Buckman gave me a buzz to say hi. Apparently they'll be upgrading Sparky clients to Lyris v.6 which is, according to Buckman, more glorious in many, many ways.
Also, Sparky's tech team, Stu, Mindy and Mike are leaving the glamour of Wisconsin to move to the West Coast to work for Lyris. Where they may be warmer in the winter, but they'll never find houses they can afford. Life is a tradeoff.
