The guys who brought us social media rooftop bbq’s in Gastown, Bryght, have now been acquired by the the primo Drupal site, blog and podcast deliverers, Raincity Studios.

This global-mega-hyper-conglomorate melds together the two single most important companies in Vancouver when it comes to web 2.0, imho.

This morning’s news release states:

The deal took flight while Scales and Kris Krug, now-former-President of Bryght, were in China
scouting a new office location in Shanghai when they decided their companies’ complementary services could be enhanced by joining forces. Krug, the newly appointed President of the new company, saw the growth potential saying, “By joining Raincity Studios, we can capture market leadership by responding quickly to the unmet demand for Drupal development services worldwide while also offering an increased service roster to our existing growing client base.”

I personally hold those guys mainly responsible for the thriving geek activity around here. Aside from meetups, face time, chats and friendship being built, there is also truly a sense of community (see: our crimebusters work re: Workspace‘s computer theft incident or Vancouver.FreeTheNet.ca wireless mesh project). You now, aside from all the professional things they do like working on projects for clients like SPIN Magazine, Ozzy, and The Grateful Dead – to name a few.

Also, big things are to come very soon from a Miss604.com/Raincity Studio collaboration, which I’m very excited about. All the best to these individuals and their companies in this new venture.

    How did you know we were changing the name to “global-mega-hyper-conglomorate”?
    In case you don’t hear it enough, “thanks for all you contribute to the scene Becks.”

    PS By the way, I’ve seen the 604 designs in process and that designer guy is gooood!

    I guess that “I’m a Bryght Girl” t-shirt just got a lot more elusive!

    You should seriously consider changing the graphic at the top.
    It looks too much like Tibet, and not enough like Vancouver.

  4. thanks Rebecca, happy belated USA turkey day!
