Acquia's 10 year anniversary

Starting small, building huge

This week marks ten years since I incorporated Acquia, the company that I count as the highest positive-impact business I’ve built. Yet, it wasn’t some incredible strategic, execution, or product skill on my part that made it happen; it is - of course - due to the people involved.

I often suggest to other founders that they thoughtfully identify the key things they need to do to reduce risk / create value in their companies, and put extra focus on those.

I loved the sound in a the kick drum from a couple of the tunes in the November podcast by Shur-I-Kan. The sound is like what a kick sounds like when a drummer puts a pillow into the drum cavity of a kick. It sounds more like (wait for it ...) a soft thump than a crisp, hard kick. So I tried to put together a bunch of songs that shared that characteristic.

This week I went to a club in Brooklyn with 4 hours of great DJs form 8-midnight, and the George Clinton live from 12-2. This got my brain in the funky mode. My crate is not super-deep in funky house, and I don't know that end of my crate well enough. So I think I could have done better on the sequencing of these tracks. But, I had fun, and think I need to play this stuff more. It's so fun to dance to!
