Psst! Hey you! Come here, I want to tell you a secret. Promise you won’t tell anybody, though. Okay, so, you’d never guess this, but OpenMedia’s team consists largely of a syndicate of 20-something hyper-nerds squirreled away in a dusty office in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district.
Sometimes we poke our heads out from behind the calming glow of our laptop screens and look out on the hip youngsters meandering the Gastown streets before getting scared and rushing back to the warm embrace of artificial light. We’re a pale bunch. But for some reason, maybe because the Internet is rapidly bringing geek culture into the mainstream, cool kids sometimes come our way and raise our hipness level to dizzying new heights.
