Burstin’ at the seams

When people ask how long the site has been up for, I usually count from the date TechCrunch wrote a story on RUWT?. The IM conversation between the Chairman and I when the users started flooding in and I realized they wrote about the site is pretty freakin’ hilarious.

Fast forward eight months, and we have gotten into a tiff with the NHL, caught countless classics, stumbled through a radio interview, and just yesterday blew through the 2,000 user barrier. It’s amazing how quickly my priorities can shift from just trying to get someone (anyone!) to write about me, to obsessing about how to send out hundreds of alerts just a few seconds faster…

I never would have made it this far without you guys, and I want to take a second to shout a big Thanks to everyone who has joined in the fun. Hopefully RUWTbot and I can keep doing this for a long, long time.

Check back in tomorrow. Big news for our neighbors to the North.
