Today marks my one year anniversary of joining the team at Clearspring to work on AddThis. We have a tradition in our office of bringing in a pound of candy, so today I brought in a pound of Peanut Butter M&Ms. Apparently this started as a tradition at Microsoft many years ago and somehow migrated over to us. I chose peanut butter m&m’s because they are delicious.
It’s been a great year. Some of the highlights include: Refreshing our Get AddThis process, Making AddThis More Accessible , Revamping our integration with both Blogger and WordPress (which just got another update Today!) and moving away from flash to canvas based charts.
Of course the biggest highlight has been the opportunity to own features, drive innovation and learn from and teach my coworkers. They have made the last year a true pleasure.
