Life @ Around25, This month in Around25

This month in Around25 - Issue #11

I was thinking about what I'm going to rant about this time and then I realized this: most of us have been vacationing, myself included.

As a consequence, no ranting this month. I'll keep it quiet. This August everybody's been lying on some beach or climbing a mountain top. Oh well, except the interns. They had a lot on their plate, plus a Demo Day last Friday.
