Hey, folks-

Shortly before launch, we had the notion that we should put up a modern 
homage to great gifs of the past, specifically the "man at work"/"under 
construction" sign:

  http://codepen.io/joshnh/pen/ohbHl

We dumped the idea because of some concerns about the image it would 
send, but maybe we should put this on the main page for April Fools?

Regards-
-Doug
