As part of reaching Silver VIP, one of the rewards that [user=758][/user] earned was an all expenses paid trip to visit the Webroot office. He arrived yesterday and I picked him up at the airport. We scheduled several fun events, including a welcome party with cake, meetings with several key Webroot staff, and showing him around Boulder. Today the fun continues as TripleHelix got to meet with the executive staff at breakfast, as well as talk to the senior developer team. He even got to push the button to launch the latest beta version of WSA. Here's some photos of the events: Let them eat cake!

Webroot's and PrevX's history apart and together are a very long story. Many, like me, know parts of it. People from the Wilders Security Forums know most of all (where power-user TripleHelix hails from.) Has anyone assembled a history of everything that's known? I know it's going to sound like brown-nosing - posting this on the Webroot forum, identified as a Webroot Community Guide - but I think it's a really interesting business story. Webroot saw what PrevX was doing, something completely different, and in the end dropped all its consumer products in the belief that PrevX was the right path. It's not often you'll find a company that will replace the core tech it has been building for a decade with that of a small team's from another country.
I saw this so-called “Holiday” and did a little google search to see if it’s really a thing and found that several sites are referencing today as National slap your annoying coworker day. Now I have to wonder if this holiday falls on a Sunday on purpose…
Let's have a little fun for the upcoming Super Bowl. We'll have a pool to guess the winner and final score. Post your guess in here before the game starts on Sunday, and the winner will get their choice of Webroot swag or free product. You have to put which team you think will win, and the final score of the game for your entry to count. Whoever's guess is closest wins. Big thanks to [user=758][/user] for suggesting this! Now post your entries below. If you post the same entry that someone else has already made then your entry doesn't count. May the best community member win.
This week Sherry aka ? flew all the way from NY to Colorado to tour the Webroot offices as part of her reward for achieving Silver VIP status on our community. Tuesday afternoon I picked her up from the airport and drove her to the hotel where she’d be staying for the length of her visit. After a quick stop at the shoe store for some new boots (it had started to rain that evening – everyone joked that she’d brought the weather with her :) ), we headed over to the Zolo Grill restaurant to meet with James and several other Webroot folks that Sherry knew from the community for a welcome dinner. We had a fun time and Sherry’s nerves at meeting so many new people were quickly calmed. A few drinks didn’t hurt either :) The next day her tour started. It began with Mike Malloy, our Executive VP of Products & Strategy, meeting her for breakfast and then bringing her to the office. First up was a meeting with several support, escalation and QA folks from We
