    We are thinking of doing a contest/giveaway where the prize is Tom's dogeared/highlighted/Post-It marked copy of The $100 Startup... he could sign it, too.

    I just placed my book order on Amazon. I can't wait to read about the accounts of various entrepreneurs including the Tom Bihn story.

    Cupcakes?! Oh why do I have to live so far away from all the fun?!

    Hope someone takes pictures!

And the dogs - definitely we're beholden to our dogs.

    So refreshing to read this post Tom! Not that I would have expected otherwise - but it's just lovely to read such reassuring words about a favourite brand, a favourite company, and the best crew around who go above and beyond. Oh and we nutters - I mean fans - can be rather enthusiastic too!

    Cheers to all the TB family crew!

    Hehe!!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post, Tom. We all love you and everyone at your company. Thank you for all the wonderful stuff you make. And do.

    Oh, and for the doggy pictures. We love those, too.

    I wonder how much control you would lose over your products. Especially with most companies having their products made outside the USA.
