Today, we officially launched the new startup I’ve been working on for over a year.
Curious.com was born from sunlight-fueled conversations with Justin and John, then nurtured by some of the best people I’ve ever met. This could be a post about how you should launch a startup, or how you should coordinate a PR launch, or what tech stack you should use, or how awesome cloud servers are (answer: incredibly awesome).
But this post is none of those things.
This post is about what makes working way too many hours at a startup worth it.
This post is about the people who could go home, but choose to stick around to give you support.
This post is about the people who know that even under tight deadlines, you have to take time to play ultimate frisbee.
This post is about the people who are always ready with a smile and an answer even when they know that that will just lead to more questions.
This post is about the people who jam on Rock Band with you while waiting for the build to deploy, and more importantly, the people who are OK with you playing Rock Band while waiting for the build to deploy.
This post is about the people who help in any way they can because they know job descriptions don’t matter.
This post is about the people who want to come in at 5am for the PR launch even though they don’t have to.
Startups claim all time that they have the smartest people (and we’d claim the same thing). But this is a post that says we have the best people, in all senses of the word “best”.
So to the team at Curious.com, congratulations and thank you!
