More on Postini

Saul Hansell has an article in the New York Times blog about Google driving away Postini resellers. Fair point – offer a service to the end-user cheaper than through a middleman, and you get rid of the middleman. It’s the old ‘disintermediation’ that the internet has been know for since the beginning.

I wrote about my switch to Postini earlier. I wouldn’t have done it if Google hadn’t started offering the service directly – partly for cost reasons, and partly because I didn’t need anyone in the middle of my relationship with Google.
