18 Years of Planet Argon

18 Years of Planet Argon

Last month, Planet Argon turned 18 years old and to celebrate...we asked everyone on the team to share a photo of them when they were 18, too.

It was fun seeing a bunch of our teammates when they were younger.

Ever wondered why we're called Planet Argon? It's actually a reference to Tom Robbins' Still Life with Woodpecker (in the book, redheads originate from a planet called Argon). The domain name for Planet Argon was officially purchased on August 23, 2002.

In other exciting news, we have a new addition to our team. Just in time to join in the celebration of our 18th birthday, we recently hired Ben Parisot as an engineering manager.
