What do you guys actually do?
We build software: web applications, mobile web applications, iOS and Android native mobile applications, and beautiful responsive web sites. We do everything in house including brand identity, concepting, writing, design, development, and managed hosting. We specialize in those applications that require hard problems to be solved or big data to be crunched, and those web sites that require ultra-high availability, ultra-high performance, and extreme security.
A lot of agencies seem to do a lot of that, what makes you guys so special?
We've been doing it a long time, most of us for over 20 years. Our team has built super computing systems, the world's first ISP, organized amazing conferences, seen the world through new eyes, and painted the desert. As an organization, we co-founded a collaborative workspace for impact entrepreneurs and have directly contributed to granting thousands of dollars for awesome local, civic engagement. We've also traveled most of the world and are still actively working on that. We've done a tremendous amount of teaching over the years and contribute 1000s of libraries to the Open Source community. All combined, our small team has started more than 15 companies and 5 startups, while combining mindfulness with money, cultivating insight around organizational strategy and documenting our journey along the way.
And we don't like to brag but we are like, really, really good at the internet.
What's your mission?

How do you define 'impact'?
Great question. We understand impact organizations to be those that use ingenuity to actively help people and our environment, by providing solutions to real problems. We've found that we do our best work when it engages real problems, when we are helping create a world where no one is limited by their circumstance.
I have a question that you didn't answer.
We want to know what you want to know: would you please take a moment to ask us?
