So, our Designer Andi Woodward is making four of our own. In a larger context, though, we fight for these opportunities to create... read more

    It occurred to us that the stuff we're creating in Quarry makes the Internet well, more  Internet. And our first little app is no exception. We've all seen them, those 287 character zombie links in Instagram posts that the 400M+ monthly users can't do anything with. Like a lemon without juicer, we thought those links needed some squeeze. It's the Internet - give us our links! Seeing a... read more

    Open links in Instagram, like butter.

    Smell that? Progress is fermenting at the Blatz. Okay, it's probably asbestos (or body odor) but either way demo has begun on our new space. We're scheduled to take occupancy by EOY and are well on our way. Great light, huge volume, private entrance, wonderful views, oh, and it needs to get totally gutted like my smelly refrigerator two weeks after Thanksgiving. Some pics from today..... read more

Part of what we want to do with this blog is bring you into the inner workings.  We’re going to have victories and defeats and we think it's... read more
