Wow!!!! After a very short period of time (since March), the startup I am at is finally finalizing an acquisition. I got my offer letter today from the new, much bigger company.

Oh boy, this starts a new chapter in my career ... one where I will be surrounded by countless people who are all smarter than me.

    On the other hand you might be surprised.

    I was in an acquisition by a company based in the valley. They talked big about how they've got high standards for their teams and so many smart folks and so on. I was super excited to go out there and meet everyone and it was a fun trip to do that.

    Then ... in about 6 months our lowly midwestern scrubs were out performing their valley based teams by a wide margin. ;)
