Thomson Reuters Launches!

As has probably been evident, I have been pretty busy over the past few weeks, attending to the birth of an extraodinary new company.  OKAY, I am partial, and the company is not exactly "new" as Thomson Reuters is the offspring of two proud parents with long corporate histories.

I usually try to avoid talking too much shop, as most corporate blogs bore me to death, and Thomson Reuters operates a perfectly adequate corporate site at www.thomsonreuters.com.  However, the planning and launch have been so time-consuming, and I am genuinely so excited about the people, business and prospects of the company, that I can't think of anything else that is even remotely as interesting to write about.

I may have drunk the Kool-Aid, but it sure tastes good.

Tom I was at Radio City and you looked like a proud poppa. We from the Thomson legacy side have been looking forward to that day as much as you have and are proud to call ourselves Thomson Reuters. BTW how did you accomplish taking over Times Square? Very impressive.

I have just launched my own (very small) media portal greenshouts.tv and I can only imagine what you guys have been up against giving birth (!) to such a big baby (!) - Well done and congratulations - really looking forward to using Thomson Reuters. Reuters was such a source of inspiration to me, so keep up the good work.

Tom, let's hope you root for the Vasco da Gama. ;-)

Speaking of Brazil, could you be kind enough to write a post about the emerging markets?
