Celebrating with Lasers

To celebrate 2.5 weeks at our new startup, we visited the machine shop in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT, and used the laser cutter to create a first pass at a sign for our company. Seeing that we are working in some co-working space at the Harvard Business School Innovation Lab (i-Lab), being able to hang up a sign above our desks, is, well, a good thing.

With the lasers changed from stun to cut, we placed some acrylic in the machine, and hit the green "Go" button. Since our settings weren't right the first time around, we had to do a couple of passes for it to cut all the way through the plastic, but it didn't take long until we could take all the bits and pieces and glue them together. Of course, talk is cheap, so, how about a quick movie? Yes, you say? Ok, here it is.

As we build this company up from three people to, hopefully, plenty more, I'm going to try my best to keep this creative, fun-loving, culture alive so that work isn't just work, but also interspersed with fun (and lasers!).
