So the project we've been working on for over a year (almost two, depending on where you want to start counting) is finally out. This has been an amazing experience. Thanks to everyone who made this possible: Ben, Mena, Andrew, Rachel, Mike, Michael, Barak, Byrne, David, Chris, Garth, Beau, Nick, Kevin, Miriam, Lilia, Winnie, Jamison, Tatsuhiko, Yann, Anil, Jay, Kristine, Brenna, Shelley, Steve, Patti, Junior, Brad, Whitaker, Artur, Mark, Paul, Serdar, Lisa, Harold, Gladys, Scott and everyone else (I know I spaced some people here, and this list is not exhaustive).
I'd like to give a special shout out to the Comet engineering team: You are all awesome. It's been a privilege working with such a talented, hard-working group of people. This has been by far the product I've been most happy creating, from beginning to now (it's not over yet).
