    I knew I wanted to invest in these guys about 30 seconds into using their product for the first time. It makes recording desktop video so insanely simple. Meeting the team made this investment a no-brainer. These guys are stars in the making. But if you’re reading this Nick, Sean, and Peter, don’t let it go to your head. In fact, get back to work! :P
