The day before yesterday we reached Release Candidate 1 for the first of our new recipe apps.

While this seems like it ought to be a milestone worth celebrating, I’ve been here many times before, and it’s always more ambivalent than that. Any joy is tempered by grief over features that got cut, anxiety over rough edges, doubts about mistakes (real or imagined), and the guilt-like need to ship that hangs overhead like an ominous cloud.

Enough of my problems.

The good news is that an actual product announcement is just around the corner.
