It almost went by unnoticed, but today marks Linode’s sixth birthday. It was six years ago today that Linode opened its doors for business, and since then we’ve helped to define our industry — building one of the most respected VPS brands. We’ve enjoyed phenomenal growth over the years, constantly improved our features and offerings, and been able to pass a better value down to our customers at the same time. And we’ll continue with that trend — stay tuned for some exciting announcements. There’s always neat stuff coming down the line on our roadmap.
Also, we have some hiring announcements — please join me in welcoming two new members to our team:
Jed Smith accepted a position of Systems Developer at the beginning of the month. He hails all the way from Phoenix, AZ by way of Eugene, OR, by way of Detroit, MI. He’s gone crazy these past few weeks, like a kid in a candy store, learning about our systems’ architectures and associated tools. I can already tell he’s going to fit right in around here.
Sam Kleinman has also joined the Linode team, accepting a technical writing position for a new effort we’re putting into place. Stay tuned for more details on that. Sam’s a prolific blogger, compulsive knitter, and *nix tweaker. He’s moving out here from St. Louis, MO, and we’re looking forward to his contribution.
Linode has been such a privilege to operate. We appreciate your business so much. So on behalf of the Linode team, I want to thank you, our customers, for making our success possible.
