    I love it, fascinating … However it should reflect on productivity anyway … I bet that employees now sleep early to wake up early and go to office quickly :) That’s so inspiring, particularly for the creatives … Editors, and yeah developers too … Fantastic Samih and Hussam, look at the happiness you gave to hundreds of people because of your success … Cooool
