2016 has been a hell of a year, and everything has basically made me want to punch babies at some point (DON’T YOU TAKE CARRIE FISHER FROM ME 2016, YOUSONOFABITCH) – but there have been many new doors that have opened for us all and I’m excited to see what is ahead.
Reflecting back, as far as Crit and Tek go - I think we could all agree that some things could have gone differently. But you know what, these experiences that we go through in life are great for the things they teach us. These experiences are invaluable-- they can make us better people and a better company.
Next year is going to be interesting. Crit will slowly change - the content, the audience, everything around it. Here’s what has been on my mind and kind of wanted to talk to you guys about:
Crit now has proper payroll services in the works, and we’ve worked with someone local and great for Quickbooks (she actually used to do tech support for Intuit/Quickbooks, now is a certified CPA and Quickbooks is her specialty! And importantly, she is quite affordable).
We need to get Patreon sorted out. It has been admittedly thinned out as we focus on a lot of other things that need to get sorted out, but we want to give back to those that want to support us. I’ve heard a couple of times people wanting a $10 level - so if you have any unique ideas that we can offer in return, that’d be greatly appreciated.
Our stolen equipment has been found and witnesses have come forward. Legal action is being taken. More details soon™.
We’ve heard some of you - the logo can and probably will change. We may just go to referring to ourselves as “Crit” as well.
Content. If you haven’t seen my shitpost on YouTube and it’s impossible algorithm - basically we’ve been taking a hard look at the content we produce, how we produce it, and more. We’ve been talking as a team and we may take a week off from our grind to sit down and really talk about the new content we’re going to produce. Each of us have our own interests, and some of which hasn’t been put on YouTube yet - or atleast delivered well. As we’ve mentioned before, it probably won’t be nearly as much hardware focused. We of course value your feedback, so we want to hear any ideas that you guys might have for what we could produce.
Expect some live streams. Expect some written content on the site from the team.
As always, thank you for your continued support. It means a lot to the team and myself.
