The new year is here! 2017 is a book of clean, blank pages waiting to be filled and brimming with potential.
With the beginning of the new year, I, like many of you, set aside time for reflection. It is easy for me to forget just how much was accomplished over the past 365 days when I’m in the midst of projects and tasks of my own. As I look back on 2016, I am pleased with just how much Golden Software has accomplished.
I was recently interviewed by Scientific Computing World (you can read the full article here), a global publication dedicated to providing computing and information technology resources to scientists and engineers. During this interview, I enjoyed discussing how the needs of these scientists and engineers have changed, and how Golden Software will continue meeting their needs in these ever changing times.
The month of March marks our 33rd anniversary, and as you can imagine, we have witnessed many changes over the past three decades! It’s difficult to recall days where printed image resolution of 24dpi was the norm, but that’s where we began. Our first product, PlotCall, was a breakthrough and offered 200dpi imagery resolution for computer generated maps. Fast forward to today and you’ll see our products used to generate maps and graphs for scientific publications, cutting-edge research, business intelligence reports, and even expert witness documents.
Last month I had the honor of receiving the Colorado School of Mines 2015 Young Philanthropist Award. During their annual Evening of Excellence, Mines celebrated those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer and philanthropic involvement in the university. The Young Philanthropist Award was one of eight philanthropy awards presented that evening. I must say, I was deeply honored to share the stage with such generous alumni and staff. And I also learned CSM’s newly elected president, Paul Johnson, was a Surfer user!
