This is my first post on the Quizlet blog, and I want to use it to wish Andrew Happy Birthday (it was yesterday). I called him yesterday, thinking I'd just get his voicemail since he's super busy with school this week. I was going to sing happy birthday on his voice mail. But then he picked up, but he was tired and in the middle of something else, so it didn't really feel like a birthday call.
So I'm saying it now: Andrew, Happy Birthday! It's a big one. Hope you had fun last night...
Andrew and I have been working together for almost three years, and on Quizlet for almost two. I'm continually amazed by both his technical capability and his clear vision for Quizlet as a fun, free, and easy-to-use way to study. Recently I signed up as CEO of Quizlet, primarily to help Andrew handle Quizlet's growth. We're adding thousands of new users everyday, getting lots of requests for new features and bug fixes, and have lots of things we want to do (e.g. new games, mobile apps, image uploading) to make Quizlet an even better experience. My job is to help that stuff happen faster.
Speaking of faster, you may notice the site running faster today. We've been having a problem with our search technology the past few days which has slowed the site down. Andrew was able to fix it this morning, so it should be better now.
Happy Birthday Andrew!!!
