We want to thank Microsoft for providing a solid technology foundation and powerful tools to build on it. And we want to thank them for calling on everyone to challenge what is possible and realize their full potential.

And we want to thank Google for making the complete sphere of human knowledge accessible to everyone who asks.

This is the beginning of LAMU. There is a long way ahead to achieve our mission. We are confident we will get there because we are not alone. And together, we can achieve anything.
