Software is the ultimate intellectual pursuit. The software one creates is only limited by creativity and effort. The same applies to the companies that spring up around the software, and how one maximizes the value of the software and company. This is why I love software and our firm gives us the opportunity to live this at scale every waking moment. I love software.
