On Monday, I attributed to the initial comment about the "Brick S-house" at the IMN Forum on Data Center Investing to Digital Realty/GI Partners Managing Director Rick Magnuson. While he used the term, it was in fact created by Jeff Moerdler of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo during the pre-keynote banter, when I was still in the registration line, along with the people attending the Distressed Hotels event. Now, some of this blog's readers who were already in the conference noticed that I credited Magnuson, and not Moerdler, for this term, and I wanted to publish a correction here, and let all of our readers know that neither I, nor Lisa, would ever want to incorrectly attribute any quote made at a conference about a "sh--house".
In all seriousness, it was a great event, with a lot of good detail on site selection issues, financing, pricing, and competition. I highly recommend hedge fund and mutual fund PMs take a look at the 2011 event if it continues with these themes.
