SkillSlate’s New Home

June 22nd, 2010

I haven’t been posting as often as I’d like; I’ve been buried under a rock lately working on SkillSlate.  While starting a company is a ton of work, it is also one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever undertaken.  I’m actually excited to get into the office every day.

Speaking of our office, I thought I post a pic of SkillSlate’s new home now that we’re finally just about settled.  It’s a great space in the Chelsea/Flatiron area with plenty of open space and sunlight.  It’s a pretty cool feeling going from working on SkillSlate from my apartment on the side, to having an actual space to call our own.  Here we are cranking away!
