They’re good for you 😉

Actually so does mine … The perfect web development platform: Windows 7 running on a virtual machine running on Snow Leopard running on a Mac Pro :)

Love the bloopers :) They are the ones that truly reflect the nature of working at Xero, I think. Also good to know you’re not only creating fantastic accounting tools, but possibly branching into the baking business as well…perhaps with baker girl Rowena in the lead. LOL

Aahhh… Bless.

“We won’t make you look like a dick”

Bravo Craig for having the audacity with get in front of the camera. It’s also good to see the “nude viral video” idea lost out.

Ah classic! Nice one Owen!

Man, I was going to apply for a job, but after seeing that video, I’m really having second thoughts. For one thing, I can’t believe you’re employing Canadians.

I keed! I keed! Looks like a cool place to work.

Fun at work and creating a great product does go together. Maybe if bankers were to have such laughs at work they wouldn’t suck so much. O wait hold on, they do have such laughs but more in the evil way.

December 16, 2009 at 1:41 pm

“Rod Drury look alike haircut”?? I think you’ll find his head of hair is not quite what it used to be 😉 (Though he would probably suggest it’s me making him lose it :))
