Very cool. Rackspace are using the cartoon above for their new “Small Teams, Big Impact” homepage.

Here at gapingvoid, we feel very honored. We really do.

Like Rackspace says,

Small teams can have a huge impact on the world.
Here we hope to inspire the small teams of tomorrow by highlighting and celebrating those impacting the world today. Return here for videos, blogs, web casts and other information on the latest startups and emerging technologies.

Trying to change the world for the better, while making an honest living in the process.

Trying to be helpful, as Rob La Gesse likes to say.

At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
