Thanks

It’s been almost five months since Cashman and I started out on this Yesware journey. We’ve met with and learned from some amazing people along the way. So I wanted to take a moment to say thanks for your interest and support. There’s much more to do, of course, but we wouldn’t have gotten this far without you.

First off, thanks to our families: Ruth, Heloiza, Xico, Anna, Nelson and Roy.

Thanks to our dev team: Dave at Rocket, Mohit, Bruno and Adam. We’ve talked with scores of people about Yesware over the past several months.

Thanks to everyone who listened and contributed their ideas. Thanks especially to the following folks who have gone above and beyond with their help: Jim Dickie, Amy Lovelace, Jaci Hayes,  Ron Martin, Frank Visgatis, John Golob, Josh Larson, Stevana Case, Paul Healy, Daniel Pink, Stan Reiss, Antonio Rodreguiz,  Dan Waldschmidt, Gerhard Gschwandtner, Miles Austin, Geoff Hyatt, Rich Miner, Mike BakerJeremy Allaire, Nigel Edelshain, David Hauser David Brock, John Prendergast and Alan Phillips.

We’ve read and absorbed the lessons from hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors and academics. The absolute most helpful authors/resources for us have been: Mark Suster, Ben Horowitz, Steve Blank, Phil Wainewright, 37 Signals, SEOmoz, Fred Wilson, Twitter and, increasingly, Quora.

And thanks to you, dear reader. Your comments, private messages and introductions help more than you can know. Here’s to a great end of the year, and a fantastic 2011!
