Our Vision

We are here to enable creators of all kinds to communicate better online. Since being founded December 2007 in San Jose, California we have been working to develop web services anyone can use for fun, for work, to teach, and to learn. It's our hope to build services that can help users express themselves in new ways and have fun doing it.

T-Shirts with Creative Commons
