Jonathan Field - Maker of Random Stuff


Today we launched the warehouse. Just the inbound side for now, but real people and real products. It all worked… not immediately and not perfectly, but quickly and well. It was pretty thrilling to see a substantial volume of stuff go all the way through the process for the first time, boxes zipping around conveyors every which way, people using this huge machine that spans 400K sqft at the moment, and that me and the rest of the team have been working on for more than a year.

Tomorrow (well, in just a few hours) we throw some curveballs at it, and we start testing the outbound side. I’m not consciously worried about any of it, but it’s still making sleep difficult for some reason. I can’t wait until we’re past the launch phase and finally in orbit, whatever the orbit may be…

  1. Yay! Congratulations! I’m obviously not a disinterested party, but I can’t help but reflect on what a great and happy accomplishment this is.

  2. I read that as, “Today we launched the whorehouse.”
