Bryght and Rain City Studios - Together at Last

Have you even had two friends that you knew separately who fell in love and eventually moved in together, got married and created a great couple?  That's what I feel about the news that two of my favorite tech companies (and groups of people) are merging.  Rain City Studios is acquiring Bryght (Press Release) and I'm so excited about the news. Drupal worlds are colliding.

I've been a member of the Bryght and Rain City fan clubs since 2005.  Bryght hosts (and supports) this site, Rain City designed our travel site and more than anything, I've had the pleasure to travel with, party with and brainstorm with a lot of the folks at both companies.  Congrats Robert, Kris, Boris and everyone involved!

I won't ask about kids at this early stage.
