Gliffy Beta Begins

The Gliffy closed beta has begun. We’ll slowly add more user to the beta in the next several weeks/months. Browse on over to and you can see our new home on the web. In fact, as of today, we are no longer Silver Tie Software, but Gliffy, Inc. Our first application is a diagram editor. Imagine Visio deployed over the web, with instant collaboration features.

A lot of hard work from many people helped to make this happen. A short list:

  • Clint Dickson – Founder – Director of Engineering
  • Lyla Warren – Founder – Creative Director
  • Dana Yobst – Early involvement with Biz Dev and more
  • Andrew D. Toebben and Gundersen Dettmer – Legal
  • Henry Lyne – Helped us build out soon to be defunct
  • Jason Lee – Helped talk through technical and strategic issues
  • Dennis Yang – Provided us valuable insight early on
  • Jo Ann Promponsatorn – Accounting advice
  • Mom & Dad – I might need a loan from you soon!
  • …and everyone else who listened to me talk non-stop about what we’re doing, providing feedback, etc.

email hosting suggestions?

Dear LaszyWeb,

Do you have any recommendations for email only hosting providers for my small business? My requirements include:
– Ability to create discussion lists
– Ability to create email newsletters, including the option to sign up people from a form on our web site. We need to be able to sign people up without having them confirm so that we can move several hundred emails off of our old email newsletter system.
– IMAP, webmail, etc
– Auto responder email addresses
