The Benefits of Working at a Start Up #2

Mike Samson + Ross Kimbarovsky
“Does this adapter make me look fat?”

Boy, do I like to create series in the Blog…but more than that, I am just really excited to post this lovely picture of our fearless leaders, crowdSPRING co-Founders Mike Samson and Ross Kimbarovsky.

Earlier this month, Chicagoans were oh-so-lucky enough to experience a tornado rolling through our fair city. I had the fortune of a tree landing on my car (the Prius is a-okay though!), and our beautiful cement bunker in the West Loop was flooded to the point where Chris’ (one of our developers) flip flop floated to the other side of the office. The Great crowdSPRING Flood of ’08 also led to all of our power supplies being rendered useless. Instead of crying about it, we went out to lunch at Fiesta Mexicana for some burritos and took it upon ourselves to pretend Mike and Ross were Christmas trees with an affinity for Apple products and power strips. The image above is the outcome.

NOTE FROM ROSS: Angeline forgets that while having lunch at Fiesta Mexicana, we asked her to teach us how to use chopsticks. There is a good guide at wikiHow, and we all suspected that she wasn’t showing us the correct way, but…

Just another glimpse in the crazy yet fun world of internet start ups!
