80% of my time is in Vancouver, 20% is traveling and meetings. I spend a lot of time with my marketing and product teams. I'm working on building the sales team and enterprise sales. We regularly meet with Twitter and Facebook, this fall we did an exclusive launch of promoted tweets with Twitter. We want to work with more social media properties, since we've built an API directory so people can build into our product.
