Recently, our company entered its third year. It’s hard to believe that it was just a little over two years ago when Katie, Liz and myself would spend our days sitting in a Starbucks somewhere, trying to figure out what to blog about.

It has been an amazing two years. We have grown as a company: We notched a few wins, survived a few scary moments, found time for some puppy love and had some fun, but most importantly, we’ve focused on the job at hand. My team’s focus — and commitment — manifests itself on a daily basis.

I take a lot of pride in working with talented people who follow the ethics and traditions of journalism and bring them to blogging. We have been able to combine our eclectic mix of news, analysis and point of view into an easy-to-digest format that befits the time-deprived state we all find ourselves in these days. It’s our own brand of immediate media.

Our friends at BusinessWeek seem to like that blend, as they have formed a syndication partnership with us that will see them will feature select content from the GigaOM Network on BusinessWeek.com every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. In fact, the first fruits of our collaboration are already online.

Our syndication arrangement with BusinessWeek is our first content partnership, but it won’t be our last. We are going to be very methodical in how we work with our partners, including creating an almost bespoke experience that fits the needs of our editorial and syndication partners. I hope you continue to join us in our journey, for in this third year we plan to expand our horizons — and fulfill some even bigger dreams.
