As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, we couldn’t help but to reflect on the meaning of companionship and the feeling of fellowship. The word companion found its roots in Latin: com (together) + panis (bread), breaking bread together. Which seems fitting, as the feelings you have for a dear friend—warmth, closeness, joy—are magnified by the simple act of sharing a meal around the table.
Companionship strengthens the work that we do, making one-of-a-kind technology designed around people and their connections. We’re excited about what lies ahead when more and more of the world become connected: where the face-to-face feelings of friendship can happen over any distance.
Like holiday dinner plates, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the many amazing individuals who’ve broken bread at our table. It’s you—our colleagues, investors, advisors, and friends around the world—who’ve become our extended family and inspire in us a deep sense of camaraderie and fulfillment.
We wish you a bountiful holiday season and hope these words of gratitude find you well.
