With bounties of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie on our minds this week, it's easy to lose sight of what Thanksgiving is really all about. Giving thanks.
At SnapStream, we thank our lucky stars we're in Texas. We will never forget our HTPC roots and humble beginnings as we continue to grow the enterprise-class TV monitoring solution that we provide today. To all of our power users and loyal advocates (that means you, reading this blog!), we greatly appreciate your support.
On our Yammer network (which is thankfully free and awesome), I posted a question to Team SnapStream, "What are you most thankful for this year?" I'll let the responses speak for themselves. Small disclaimer: Employee avatars have not been altered from their original form.
"I'm thankful for the love of my family and to be leading a successful company of awesome people during sketchy economic times."
"I'm thankful for my two daughters, my wife and the rest of my family. And I'm thankful for my SnapStream co-workers who I enjoy working with... whether or not I'm in the office."
"I am thankful for working with a good group of friends. I'm also thankful for pictures of cats dressed up in little costumes."
"I am thankful for having a wonderful family, awesome co-workers and finally getting some more rain."
"I am thankful for my newly rebuilt family, SSDs making computers faster and for the reboot of IT here at SnapStream."
"I'm thankful for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers."
"I am thankful for having such a big family. Their love and support has helped keep me strong, especially this year."
"I am most thankful for my new job at SnapStream. I'm proud to be part of such an amazingly talented team."
"I give thanks to Sprint for finally getting the iPhone and to the late Wilson Greatbatch who invented the cardiac pacemaker. "
Dear reader, what are you thankful for? Feel free to share in the comments.
