For the past few years, Analog and Fictive Kin have been working together on Brooklyn Beta. At first, it was just a little conference, then a slightly bigger conference, then a small seed fund and startup accelerator, and there's more to come. It has been a lot of fun, and we don't want the fun to stop.
When we first started Analog, I wrote about having fun:
Good work isn't work; it's fun. To do our best work, we need to love what we do. We need to surround ourselves with good people who appreciate good work. We need the freedom to break boundaries. We need to be inspired. Above all else, we need to be happy.
Those words perfectly describe what it has been like to work together. Analog and Fictive Kin aren't really two separate groups of people. We're one group of friends, and from now on, we're working together as one.
Good people. Good work.
