seamless is now avnet

As mentioned a couple weeks ago, Avnet has finalized the purchase of my former employer, Seamless Technologies.

All of STI was brought over “intact” – ie, we’re still a unit, and Avnet purchased us for the people – but it’s very weird to go from such a small company (about 60 people) to such a large one (about 17000).

The last time I rode through an acquisition, it was very bad (HP’s overtake of Opsware in 2007). So far, this one looks a lot better – but, of course, only time will tell.

Hi Avnet 🙂
