First posts are always tricky to write. Why is that? Well, there’s the fact that they’ll form a lot of first impressions. On top of that, all you really want to do is tap the mike and say, “Testing, 1-2-3, testing. Is this thing on?” Finally, while there are grand plans for the new launch, it doesn’t really have a personality yet, and the initial scribbling calls for soul-searching.

Of course, the one thing not to do is write a meta-post. That would be bad.

Anyhow, welcome to The Ship’s Log. This where we’ll record our learnings as we wander the galaxy in search of new ideas, killer technology, and great people. Who are we? Well, that’s a great topic for a future post, isn’t it? Until then, check out our people page for a little more about us.

Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy The Ship’s Log!
