  5. 5. 4. Renting stuff improves living standards while reducing consumption simultaneously. This gets us excited. <br />
  6. 6. 5. We will never have grey or any color cubicles. Our people work where they please geographically. We trust each other.<br />
  7. 7. 6. Fun at work is more important than all things. It is not a corporate event, a team building exercise or a day out. It is how we roll.<br />
  8. 8. 7. We don’t work with jerks. Even if it could be financially beneficial. We’d rather be poor than unhappy.<br />

  16. 16. 15. Humans are inherently good. Corporations are built to dehumanize. Limited liability? Horrible concept. We are liable for our actions. We are humans. <br />
  17. 17. 16. We don’t confuse people with our language. We don’t trick people with terms & conditions. We speak like people. We are people. We answer our phone calls. <br />
