Thank you for your support :)
There’s a pithy and rather fatuous answer that involves the Recession, which I’ve given in every interview we’ve had, but the more personal/honest answer is that Tumblr fostered my love for visual representations of data and ideas. So much can be said so quickly and this is the perfect medium for it. I like(d) sharing and engaging in conversation and this was turned out to be a beautiful and simple way to do so. The community reacted to it positively and I learned so much from the conversations that arose, that I continued down this road. My love is entirely dependent on other people engaging with what we put here. Without that, it’s a bunch of stupid numbers and images.
