Whether you were already a work-from-home warrior or you’re still straightening out the wrinkles in your new remote working strategy, this new normal we’ve found ourselves has been (to put it mildly), a bit of a struggle for us all.
September is here, and summer is over. It’s a hard truth, but it’s a fact.
(OK, so we live in New England… autumn could be worse. Plus, it’s nearly ski season—and the excitement in the air is palpable.)
But even though summer is just about over here in New Hampshire, we certainly didn’t waste the beautiful weather while it was here.
Recently (November 11th to be precise) I celebrated my 5th anniversary with Altos - and, for some reason, people seem to put more emphasis on celebrating milestones that end in a 0 or a 5.

They say the best things in life take time. To be honest, we’ve always been a bit more about the present (and the near future), with our eye fixed pretty firmly on what’s happening now, and what we can expect in the months ahead. But once in a while it’s important to look back and reflect - and our fifteenth anniversary this June offered the perfect opportunity.
In the words of our founder Tony Matos: “You gotta practice what you preach.” After several years spent focused on bringing so many other amazing websites to the world, we decided it was time to turn our gaze inward and spend a little time tending our own backyard.
No four letter acronym has caused more sleepless nights, heartache, and, frankly, confusion to the digital universe since a little three letter acronym some 20 years ago (looking at you, Y2K). That’s right, we’re talking GDPR, which stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It’s singlehandedly causing the internet to lose its collective mind.
