Good morning, All, and hope you had a fabulous start to the new year. And we’re referring to the weather here in NYC, nothing more (that we’re aware of) – freezing and 19” of snow to end the year; 50 degrees and balmy on New Year’s Day, which we will take as a good portent.

Congratulations (again) to Emily Lutzker (openinvo.com), who ended the year with a write-up in Techcrunch (this time) and started the new year with paying customers! The piece is here: http://tcrn.ch/hCS6oc and just for the record, we love sharing good news about members, so if you have news, do tell!
