New Read It Later Icons

As services evolve and change their brand, we try to monitor their trends closely. Recently, our friends at Read It Later reached out to us to update their icons, and I just wanted to share the news. The new icons are scheduled to release soon, as well as many others.

The New Twitter Icon

As services evolve and change their brand, we try to monitor trends as close as possible. Recently, we reached out to Twitter because we’ve noticed that they’ve been using the bird icon instead of the “T”. Often times it’s scary to change an icon that has so much recognition across the web. The first thing I usually ask is if the icon change will affect share rate. This is something that we’re going to be monitoring closely, and I’d love to share the results after we collect enough data.

A Strike Worth Sharing

After our awesome Q1 meeting, our entire team (east coast, west coast and everything between) went bowling. Here are some of the highlights of our evening. Thanks to everyone who could make it out. It was a fun way to start a great year.

Transporting the team to the bowling alley.

Peggy explains the rules of the tournament to the teams.

Mike clears his mind, and prepares to throw a turkey (3 consecutive strikes).

Robert throws a strike of his own, executed with immaculate form and surgical precision.

Will provides real-time color commentary and analysis.

Aaron suffers the endless shame of a missed spare.

The finals were won by a microscopic margin—an epic victory.

The undisputed 2011 bowling champions. They are proud, humble, team players.

Afternoon Snack

Recently, Stephen picked up a popcorn machine. Folks, this is the real deal—pure crunchy buttery goodness. I’m not sure what compelled him to get it, but I give him credit for having great taste. This popcorn is way better than the microwaved stuff. I had no idea what I was missing.

Stephen is the gentleman operating the popcorn kiosk above.

Say hello to Rich and Justin. They are popcorn connoisseurs.

Mmmmm… tasty. I think it’s time for round 2.
