GigaOM hit the 5000 post mark earlier in 2005, the fourth year of blog’s existence! As a blog, it has been an amazing experience for me; writing and developing a very special bond with some of the smartest and most informed readers. With just over 5600 posts, it has been hard for me personally to keep-up with the archives.

Don’t blame me for forgetting what I wrote, say a couple of years ago. I can only imagine, how hard it will be for readers, since “internal” search is still a bit of a challenge. So I decided that it was time to create an eBook of the top 20 posts: The Best of GigaOM.


It is a mix of the most read, most commented posts ever. And a trip down memory lane. It has been designed by my dear friend Arno, who is a great designer. Check out his website, and if you need some design work done, he is one of the best. Some suggested that I should charge for this download, but somehow, that just didn’t sit right for me. So here is a little christmas present for all. You can get it here. Its in a format that is ready to print, so you can enjoy it when stuck in an Airport, waiting for you connection.

However, if you would like to support future projects, that involve more “thematic” ebooks, I won’t say no and send you a heart felt thanks!

  9. Congratulations – You remain one of the best known names in tech blogging and clearly an inspiration to fellow bloggers. would have loved to see three more postings( All these actually remain fresh in my mind after several months of getting published – Testimony to its power) of his in this e-book – one titled – The global internet shift, Asia is where the action is where he made the famous statement –“The axis of technology has shifted to south china seaâ€? & the widely read posting on internet’s deflationary effects with guest post by Robert Young titled Google – the ultimate deflator.
