A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
My friend Dan and I celebrated hitting 10 years this year with our software development company, 521 Dimensions. It’s a huge milestone — especially when you consider average American careers last about 40 years. I’ll never forget the early days of being in Dan’s dorm room drawing up different business models on how we could creatively make this world a better place.
We would stay up until 3 AM, drawing on a whiteboard while you could hear fans spinning and lights blinking from all of the computers that we re-purposed in a full-size server rack that we found on Craigslist.
10 years later, I still feel that creative energy, but the results are much different than I originally thought.
