Warning - this is a bragging blog post but we earned the right! Inc. Magazine released its annual Inc 500/5000 list and are proud to announce we made it. So now what?

We are very pleased to report that for the 1H2011, we maintained our growth and momentum, and increased our revenue by almost 100% from 1H2010. It's also a good thing we relocated our headquarters last year since we also increased our employee headcount by 75 percent year over year and brought on a new engineering executive to lead the expansion of our development team (stay tuned for another blog post on this topic).
