For the past 2 weeks, I hadn’t written any articles or blog posts. Why you ask? For more than a month, the office has been very strongly focused on a really big design change to… well, everything really.

I mean this in a less literal sense of course- although that looks like a lot of fun (I might have to go shopping for hats later…).Read More
