David fell into the pit,

but the show must go on.

Airport rollers buddies: “Hey, we both have no control over where we’re going!”

What a week. As you might or might not know, AMI, the parent company of Hacker Noon, is small. Like surprisingly small. We often get emails & tweets & Facebook messages assuming that we are the size of Medium or The Huffington Post or Product Hunt, which is flattering but also problematic. I guess it is a good problem to have :-)

yoooooooo Olivia dela Rosa 🙌🙌🙌

So when our only full time employee & CEO David had an accident that brought him to the ER at the wee hours of Monday morning, the impact was real & immediate. Actions had to be taken. Jay stepped up to review and publish most submitted stories. And I am now writing the first newsletter ever to 321,616 Hacker Noon readers. This is a completely new territory as my main responsibilities (besides being a mom to David’s child) are to source stories, manage partners, and increase revenue.

As they say — the show must go on, thanks to these amazing & dedicated contributors, and YOU, the readers.
