“You, Your writings and TechPoint are a gem!  I just stopped by to say thank you for access to the amazing pieces you share regularly. I appreciate the work you do.”

“Good Morning Victoria and Happy New Year,
I hope this makes your Monday - Just to let you know that this loyal reader does read your newsletter before going to bed (when in Canada) or after waking up (when in Nigeria). So, you're up there with the WSJ's CFO and CIO daily journals as my must reads. I also mention it to friends and acquaintances that are in the tech sector.”
