I wrote this thing. It's about #startups and company #culture and stuff. If that sounds interesting to you, maybe you should give it a read. 

Oh yeah, and @SendGrid might be involved. Surprised?

I'm constantly amazed at the creativity of my teammates. This time,  +Kunal Batra has enabled anyone on the web to control the lights in his living room by simply sending an email. Better yet, you can see the magic happen through a live stream video on the +SendGrid TV blog. 

The internet of things is here! 
Test it out and see for yourself >>
