My favorite part of running this company is seeing people “get” the transformation from “game mechanics and checkins are cute” to “with 1.5bn checkins, we can change the way you experience your neighborhood”.
But if you think the gaming mechanics “will take a back seat” you’re mistaken… we’re just waiting till we have the resources to amp them back up again. Not to show our hand at all, but do you really think all those “Level 6 Coffee” badges are just for fun and games? :)
Me to Henry: Good morning! Did you sleep well?
Aelen: (Interjecting) I dreamt about Monsters!!
Me to Henry: What did you dream about? Did you dream about choo-choos?
Aelen: (Interjecting) I dreamt about bad choo-choos!
Me to Henry: Where were the choo-choos going?
Aelen: (Interjecting) They were going up BAD CHOO-CHOO MOUNTAIN!!
