Claranet's Purchasing Trend
I'm familiar with NotSoSecure and in this case, I hope the purchase allows them to accomplish their goals.  Unlike some company procurement machines, Claranet's track record has been pretty interesting.  For example, last year they bought French company Oxalide who has developers active in the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities.  A great small company with a good attitude (OpenBSD experts, too, and I love me some pufferfish).  Previous procurement of ISPs, including Netscalibur which was noted as the largest UK ISP acquisition of 2003, point to more dollar growth than technology growth and to some extent absorption of those companies into the Claranet infrastructure.  Like many similar tech companies driven by acquisition rather than individual innovation, one is left to wonder what, without all the acquisitions, does Claranet actually do?  Props to Charles Nasser who founded the company in 1996 for still holding the reins but for companies like Oxalide and NotSoSecure who have awesome engineers and contribute to their respective communities, I hope this move promotes growth rather than stifling their personalities.
