A lot of nice, young, very energetic people. The average age was 26 at the time. It was a lot of people right out of college. It wasn’t by accident. The CEO did an interview at the time and said, “Look, we’re specifically trying to hire people in their 20s, Gen Y-ers, because older people just don’t get it. They don’t get technology.” … It was intentionally a very, very young place. I’ve described it sometimes as a mix of a frat house and a kindergarten and a cult — a lot of very brainwashed people who really, really think they are making the world a better place and changing the world and doing important work when really a lot of it is very tedious, repetitive work.
