Whats the most dangerous creature in the world?Â A lion, a tiger, a grizzly bear?Â Hardly…Â Far and away the most dangerous creature in the history of the world has been the mosquito.Â The mosquito is responsible for more deaths worldwide than any other creature.Â This tiny bug can and does cause massive damage.
Whats a mosquito got to do with web hosting or the IT industry in general?Â A lot!Â Somewhere out there is a teenage kid sitting in his/her basement reading this blog saying to themselves, “I can do a lot better than Bluehost!”.Â And you know what?Â They are probably right.Â Thats exactly how I was when I was a teenager.Â I KNEW I was going to start companies that were better than what was available at the time.Â These companies didn’t care a bit about me…Â I was just an annoying mosquito.
The time will come when we lose our edge, get complacent, or simply don’t watch out for those coming up fast behind us.Â We will get bit by the mosquito, and when we do it will be time to pass the torch on to the next great company with the vision to satisfy what consumers are demanding.
Hopefully that won’t happen for a long time!Â I still have some fight left in me and the torch is still firmly in my grasp – for now
