software mission statement

Was reading Signal vs Noise today, per the usual routine at lunch. ...they requested that folks describe them, to the layperson:

Here was my suggestion:
“We build sensible and usable customized web applications for humans… while contributing to open source software that helps people build, deploy and maintain web applications for themselves or their own business. In summary, we are entrepreneurial software humanitarians!”

That's my own philosophy on software, and the fellas at 37Signals seem to be of that mindset, after experiencing their products, reading their posts and book (GettingReal), listening to DHH, et al speak, etc.. Got me thinking that's a nice mission statement for individuals as well. So there it is.

It's nice to have the folks at 37Signals out there as an inspiration.
