We are passionate, we are coders, we are hackers and we are
artists. We are oversold on corporate opportunities, and are
belittled in our reviews as poor communicators, nerds, and
egotists. But we are the ones that change the world. We are the
ones that make your life easier. We are the ones that devise ways
for you to bring your family and friends closer, simply because
we thought it would be fun to do so.
