Best RMIS

January 29, 2015

RMIS is an insurance technology acronym for Risk Management Information System. It refers to risk management in the insurance sense (as opposed to the finance world). It’s a small market and there are a small number of key products.

Live Blogging a Blizzard

Not really, I have better things to do. But we did take Coby, our puppy, out for a walk and he was having a crazy good time. We’ll see how he deals with 2 feet of snow instead of 3 inches…

We have stocked up on food, snacks, desserts and beer. Well, not really. There’s a deli across the street that will be open the whole time. If I need bacon/egg/cheese on a roll at any time, I’m covered.

Have I mentioned that I love Brooklyn?…


It’s Officially a Blizzard
