Oban Lambie, owner of Brownrice Internet, will give you a "gloves-off" description of how he grew his one-man development shop into a nearly $1 million per-year hosting and data center operation. It wasn't easy, it wasn't fast, and its not over! Oban will cover everything from money, to hackers, to what's great (and what sucks) about hosting. In the end you'll know how Brownrice went from tiny to kinda-big while competing on a national level from the Internet backwaters of Taos, NM.
