For Wired’s 15th anniversary, they did had an excerpt on soul-baring quotes. This was our favorite from it:

I don’t have any lofty goals. I just want to have fun making the best damn operating system I can. — Linus Torvalds, founder and coordinator of the Linux Kernel Project, July 2003

This is essentially the philosophy that Border7 has. We only do projects that we will enjoy. We don’t work on anything mundane or boring. This may be a terrible work ethic, but it ensures that the quality of work that we output is up to the standards we’ve come to live by. Our sole goal as a company is to enjoy and love the work that we give to our clients. If we know from the get-go that the project will cause a headache, we already know that we won’t provide the client the best quality of work. We don’t want to change the world, or provide the next best thing, we just want to have fun and enjoy what we do. Fortunately, there are a few other companies out there with similar philosophies.
