Now We Are Six

Wikispaces is 6 years old. We’re going strong, and we’re having a great time.

Tomorrow we’re going to give you the numbers update we do every year to give you a sense of the scale of what we do. That’s always a lot of fun for us, and sometimes it’s a little shocking. There are a LOT of you out there.

We spend time on a regular basis thinking about what success means to us. Specifically, we ask ourselves who we want to be and what we want to do as a company. It’s not just about numbers, whether they be membership numbers, activity numbers, or revenue numbers. It’s about ambition.

We have the ambition to be innovative and efficient. Software is hard. At scale it’s very hard. Software at scale with a small team is really very hard. But it’s also fun and rewarding. We’re pretty good at this, we want to get even better.

We have the ambition to treat everyone we serve not just well, but extremely well. We want our employees, our customers, and our users to feel that we have exceeded their expectations. After all, that’s the way we like to be treated.

We have the ambition to serve more and more educators. We are reminded every day of our ability to help teachers and students. And that strengthens our commitment to expanding our presence in education, reaching more and more teachers, schools and universities, and having a positive impact on the education of students worldwide.

We are privileged to live in a time where we are constrained by almost nothing. We have the ability to be clear, open, and honest in our communications, to build something of value and get it into the hands of millions. Why wouldn’t you feel ambitious at a time like this?

Thank you for all of your help this past year. Onward and upward.
