Welcome to the GOX blog. We started writing on this back in 2008 and have persevered through the years. We regularly comment on technology, outsourcing, cloud solutions, project management and sometimes we just write about something personal.

We hope you find these updates useful, informative and we welcome your feedback or any suggestions.

Thank you for all your innovative ideas and participation.
