Hey a new meme, gotta be part of it. We got tagged by Jan and Till about “seven things”
These are the rules:
- Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
- Share seven facts about yourself in the post â€” some random, some weird.
- Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
- Let them know theyâ€™ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.
So here we go:

- The name upstream was suggested by friend. After having spent months in search for a company name we just accepted it out of desperation. Wasn't such a bad choice was it?
- When seeing our old logo most people told us it looked like a tennis ball (it was supposed to be a river) - so good we did an overhaul last year.
- We never ever hire anyone permanently - everyone who works for us is a freelancer. We don't want anyone to be dependent on us and we don't want to be responsible for anyone.
- we pair program all the fucking time (ppatft) .. mostly
- If my GTD tool wouldn't remind me every week our office plants would have died long ago
- We have hired programmers and scored gigs over twitter.
- We can write PHP but don't tell anyone.
I’m tagging Mathias, Gregor, Martin, Marius, Pat, Kristina and Christian.
