VentureBeat on Makers vs. Takers
Share with friends:
We were honored to be included on Jason Cavnar's list of organizations having a positive social impact on the world. Cavnar, co-founder and CEO of Singly, gave a shout out to Oblong in his February 18th VentureBeat guest post titled, "Why developers should start choosing conscience over profit". Jason lists Oblong amongst a set of "makers on the rise" who are having a real social impact. We feel privileged to have made the list with our quest to re-think the way humans interact with computers.
In his post, Jason challenges developers to be makers—people who work on things that have a real-world impact—versus takers, described as those who focus more on being a commoditized resource. Being "makers" is a huge part of who we are at Oblong. Our shared commitment to provide the world with new computing forms of genuine value and durable worth is what unites us. Every day we strive to build beautiful and exhilarating multi-user, multi-screen, and multi-device computing environments that will have a profound impact on the world of computers. It's why we're here.
