The news this morning in Austin (besides the chill wind blowing here today) is that BMC just bought local startup Phurnace.? Additional coverage from Austin Startup and Redmonk. ?? There are a few friends and former colleagues over there, and I wish them well at the new firm!? There have been a flurry of IPOs and (mostly) acquisitions in Austin lately, which will hopefully presage a new round of interesting startups growing up in our town.
