Yesterday was our 8th birthday as a company. Our first day as an independently owned and operated company was July 1, 2001. It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years. A lot has happened since then, for the company, for the world and for all of us personally. But while yesterday was our 8th birthday, it was our first celebrated in the new building. Each year on our birthday we bring in a special lunch for the staff. In the old building we’d set up the food in the main hallway, cover the pool table and fit as many people in the lounge as possible. Inevitably we wouldn’t be able to fit everyone so the stragglers would go in the conference room. What that means was we couldn’t have a “family” meal all together on a special occasion. In the new building however, it’s easy to set up food in the Story Lab and get everyone around the table in the conference room. We can easily get 20 people around our conference table and if we squeeze and work at it we can get up to 26 people around the table. It was really nice to have everyone in one room enjoying our birthday. Here’s to at least 8 more years together.
