What Happened Late One Sunday Evening

Nucamp Slack Channel reached 10K members

"Why did she just send a screen shot with no text?" I asked myself as I looked at Zandra's Slack message to the Nucamp team.

As a Nucamp Advisor and Student Advisor, Zandra is more than practiced at noticing the details.

Anytime she sends me a message, I always start asking myself "What about this?" or "What about that?", but all I have to do is finish reading what she writes—because she always answers my questions—the details don't slip by her.

There had to be something I was missing.

10 replies.

This is important. I clicked on the screen shot to enlarge it.

After seeing the image, a thought floated through my head: "Of course Zandra was the first to notice."

"Damn! What should we do?" asked Ludo in the chat.

Was it a good "damn" or a bad "damn"? Ludo doesn't use a measure of strong language without intent.

"You mean to celebrate? Or is there some plan limit we're about to reach?" asked Minae, Nucamp's Product lead, mindfully aware of the possibilities.

I cannot find a plan limitation on the website, so this must be a milestone that we should celebrate," replied Paul Turner, Nucamp's Student Success Manager, "...with crème brulée."

"I meant to celebrate ;)," replied Ludo.


"It's so hard to find a really good crème brulée," added Ludo.

We were so close on that Sunday evening:
