Speed up Your Website | The Web Address Ep. 6


We were perusing Entrepreneur Magazine (you may recall our appearance in the prestigious publication) and we came across a Boulder company sharing some dire news: If you’re a small or medium business and your website isn’t loading fast enough, then you’re going to have a hard time competing. The Amazons and Ebays of the world have entire teams dedicated to optimizing their websites. What they don’t have, however, is one Mr. Robert Shires. He’s part of the brilliant team behind Lagrange Systems, a company dedicated to turning your eCommerce up to the speed of mind-blowing astonishment. Shires isn’t only technically savvy, but also hilarious, so you get necessary information about improving your website speed (aka Application Delivery) without drowning in tech talk. And, as you’ll see, we’ve taken measures to make sure he stays away from mind-numbing buzzwords.

Ryan in customer support lost his beloved stapler.

It’s hard to describe the fear, worry and stress we witnessed, and that’s just from the people he accused of stealing it. Now to say that the stapler was “lost” is a bit misleading. Ryan had misplaced his stapler, but after he lashed out at anyone with fastened paper, Nic felt justified in taking it on a two-week vacation.
