You know you’ve made it big @Scoutmob when a Company Holiday calls for everyone at HQ to dress like you, in honor of your distinct fashion sense and limitless love of spreadsheets, button downs and Bonobos khakis.
Thursday, March 21st was officially marked as Foroobar Day here at Scoutmob to celebrate the life and times of our favorite prepster analyst as he departs ATL for BOS, a new marriage, and hopefully many more A/B tested, Microsoft-approved adventures to come.

MEET OUR WINTER INTERNS!
It may have taken an extra minute to get their faces up on this blog… mostly because commissioning such a complicated portrait* of these mobsters can take a little bit longer than the average iPhone photo.
Not to mention, they’re a busy bunch… so they rarely sit still long enough for the artist to really get it down.
In all seriousness, this group has so far proven to be one hard-working, fun-loving, awesome group. We’re lucky to have them their varied talents (and the baked goods they keep showing up with) here on Intern Island.

When he’s not punching out code, or building arcade games and office bots with his two bare hands, our developer Eric here flips a pretty friggin’ mean batch of French Toast for our HQ potluck breakfast-for-lunch. What can we say… He’s a man of many (random) talents.

If you’re able to see this message, it means, despite Mayan predictions, we didn’t disappear into an apocalyptic hellfire after all. (YIPPEE!) And for that reason, we say: ‘tis time to come out from your WiFi-equipped underground bunker and celebrate the end of a great year… and the promise of a bright new 2013!
As for 2012, it was a pretty epic year here at Scoutmob: we continued our mission of celebrating the best of local in all of our fine cities—we’re most excited to have launched SHOPPE to our suite of local-loving products, a promising way extend our mission of promoting the best of local to these independent creators and their inspiring creations.
And now that this next year is looking like a sure thing for the rest of humanity, there’s MORE curious local goodness where that came from for the likes of 2013.*
Here’s hoping your year was as exciting and fulfilling as ours. See you next year!
Much local love, The Scoutmob team
* But just in case the Mayan calendar predictions were off by a few days, we’ve also stashed the last few batches of everlasting Twinkies in our End of the World hideout.
Ready for 2013 with our sweet new @herschel_hk bags. Looking sharp @davempayne
