it's morning, it's morning, yay

It has been quite a morning so far. My company, Bump Technologies, just released a new major release of our app. Bump 3.0 is out for Android right now, and iPhone later today (hopefully). This release is the culmination of months of work and excitement.

Anyway, we launched about two hours ago, and we've already had 16,600 people download and install the app. There have been thousands of bumps and over a thousand matches, and thousands of photos shared. It's really interesting working for a company that has such a huge userbase -- over 75 million downloads -- the numbers are really huge and cool.

Most of the company got in at 4:30 AM today to be ready for the launch. Our wonderful HR/recruiting/admin team slaved over hot cooking devices for two hours to make us waffles and other breakfast stuff. Now the sun is up and everybody is either yawning and debating napping, or sitting down to do some work.

Days like this are exciting, and make me think fondly of the night we launched Dreamwidth to Open Beta. Watching people rush in and start using the site was so amazing. This whole "making stuff people like" thing is really addictive!

Anyway, tired now. I'll try to stick it out as long as I can, but I expect I won't make it past lunch.
