Curious Retreat 2016


We really just wanna have fun. Ya know, spend some time together, away from all the distractions, the task lists, the craziness.

We want to take the time to think a little bit about the past, present, and future of the company. But that’s secondary to having fun together doing cool things.

Great companies are built on relationships, carefully fostered by the … oh, I can’t do it. Damn, this is trite. Just have fun!
