Having something to sell is always key to a profitable business. We explore this life-hack of the business world in discussion Twitter and then Amazon licensing Thursday night football. There's also some brief talk of Akamai buying SOASTA, Cloudera filing to IPO, and the lost dichotomy of agent/agentless.

Akamai Buys SOASTA
- Monitoring acquisition
- SOASTA is testing right? A commercial district of some synthetic user testing thing?
- "Through SOASTA solutions, Akamai customers will then be able to test optimizations at scale prior to deployment and validate the business impact of those optimizations once they are live in production. The result is a comprehensive set of cloud-based performance and business outcome optimization."
- Maybe Brandon can tell us the context/issues (good and bad) for synthetic web transaction monitoring from the SiteAngel days.

Yahoo/AOL to be called "Oath"
- First there was Yahoo + Alibaba as "Altaba", now there is "Yahoo + AOL" as "Oath". Clearly this is corporate trolling at this point.
