Old town Los Gatos…don’t mind if we do! We are so spoiled with working close by. We were all too full to even get chocolate at the end….first world problems. Lawrie is around 90 pounds and Lucy is lactose intolerant but that didn’t stop them.
Please meet the better half of the office. Mrs. Peanut who pmses every day and almost got the ankle of the UPS man last week. If her hair isn’t up and she isn’t growling you know it is gonna be a good day. Wesley, the golden child, is the most chill pet of all time. He reflects the qualities of his owner who enjoys Togo’s every day and rarely speaks. LeeLoo who you picture could play Lacey in the movies. She sleeps with her belly against the wall…strange.
Yfrog Social is ramping up. This is just the soft launch and we can’t wait until the official launch. Slowly tweaking functions, adding new features and creating new UI designs. We are working around the clock to make our users happy.
Our annual summer BBQ was one for the books. Lucy did an amazing job organizing it. It was full of Micheladas, Volleyball, and catered Shish Kabobs. Anya, who was only 4-years-old and tiny ate more of the Cherry Rice than a large adult, which would explain why she is the child of Jack Levin.
Ever heard of one-minute games? Well we have and we dominated. Face the Cookie: one minute to get an Oreo from your forehead to your mouth…Lucy in advertising showed no mercy. Nutstacker: one minute to stack ten bolts…great patience and talent required…CEO Jack Levin was the only one to achieve this difficult project. Pencil Catch: twelve pencils individually picked up… quick hands; developer Nicholas Pettas won. From Volleyball lasting nicknames came about including, but not limited to, Sporty Spice, Mohessa, Tylerrotte etc. If you come in the office it is essential you ask Tyler to demonstrate his winning serve which is combined with a deep squat, make fun of Moe and Josiah’s flipper/water shoes, and view Alex’s winning dance moves (video).

This is the baby of Lawrie’s UI designs. Mikhail, although wiry, has put his heart and soul into this project by testing the functionality. Nicholas has spent a tremendous amount of time slaving away at the backend…thank goodness for early breakfast runs for Egg McMuffins to make this happen.
Working in a company with half Russians we have learned the art of Happy Hour. Although Tequila is far different than Vodka…they don’t mind. We all follow the video analogy and our life is swell (see video). Although we have backgrounds from Germany, Mexico, Russia, India, and Iran ….we have learned the art of not mixing and sticking to one culture for the evening. After last year’s company trip to Vegas we all have learned that some things should just be left in Vegas.
