A passion for Zimbra

In the upcoming October issue of Spectrum, IEEE member Eric Hahn talks about his passion for Zimbra, a company in which he was an early investor and for which has been an active advisor. This serial entrepreneur calls Zimbra his "quintessential project."

Turns out heâ''s not the only one who thinks Zimbraâ''s email technology is pretty cool; Yahoo just announced that it bought the company for $350,000. Hahn told Spectrum that when he invests in companies, he thinks of himself as â''the blue-haired lady in Atlantic City sitting at the slot machine with a box of quarters.â'' Success is not running out of quarters so he can keep playing.

Looks like Zimbra returned quite a few quarters.
