My first day at GroupMe was July 5, 2011. It’s been almost a year, and it’s been everything I hoped for when I joined. It’s also been incredibly eventful. Seven weeks after I joined we were acquired by Skype. We’ve launched several new versions of the product. I slanged ‘chos at my first SXSW. I got my first taste of telecom negotiations at Mobile World Congress.
Over the past 323 days, I’ve been fortunate to work with a tremendously talented team. I’ve learned a lot. But I still have a lot more to learn, many more people to meet, much to accomplish (and miles to go before I sleep). My ambition for this blog is that it serve as a collection of coherent thoughts. If anyone else finds it useful, great.
I’ve tried to maintain a blog several times in the past but never succeeded. Here’s to trying again.
