logoYesterday I mentioned the latest episode of The Weather Report covered the discussion about how VARs can survive in the cloud and the controversy over cloud billing. Well, you’ve flooded my inbox: What is The Weather Report?

Well, a few years ago I had a wildly popular podcast called SBS Show. It had thousands upon thousands of subscribers and covered the emerging world of the SMB IT consultant. Community had matured past the need for an hour long show so we started doing the SPAM Show, covering the events and developments for MSPs – but after about 20 episodes we all got too busy and it became apparent that putting together these podcasts was a full time job.

This gave birth to Looks Cloudy, a blog focused on getting the VAR/MSP into the cloud. There are so many things to consider and stay on top when it comes to the cloud – with everyone spending money and riding the hype train, being able to competently recommend it is quite difficult. Own Web Now wanted to help but my time was too scarce and I became too unreliable to do it.

Enter Kate Hunt ( – she is now running the blog, organizing podcasts, recording quick weekly shows to keep you and your staff in the know.

We got a lot of feedback about what you could use and what you needed. We wanted to provide that.

So tune in. Tweet about it. Blog about it.

Most of all – if you know someone that needs to be on it that knows a lot about our business and VARs – let’s get them on the podcast.

We do a lot for our community. This is just one more thing. Hope you enjoy it.
