Congrats, Thanks, and How Your Content Can Help Boston

With sadness and a growing strength in our hearts, we wanted to reach out and say we are proud to be from Boston. Patriots Day, and the concurrent running of the Boston Marathon, has always been a fun and exciting day, even inspiring our entire office to start getting healthy by doing hourly push-ups. Boston is a proud and determined city and we take great pride in having our headquarters stationed here. Curata is located in Kendall square, Cambridge, surrounded by MIT and some of the most brilliant minds in the area. We have had employees who’ve run the Boston Marathon a few times over and this event has no doubt hit very close to home.


While yesterday’s events will always be memorable, we wanted to take a moment to remember the great moments during the 117th Boston Marathon and the acts of heroism that occurred throughout the day. Finishing the Boston Marathon is a great act within itself, all 26.2 miles from Hopkinton, over Heartbreak Hill and into downtown Back Bay. It is not an easy race, some say even one of the hardest in the nation, and we want to congratulate those who participated – whether it’s your first or 10th or 100th marathon, we say “Great job and congrats! You should be very proud. Do not forget that and do not let the events of the day cast too dark a shadow on your accomplishments.”

We also want to say a big thank you to those who were there to help – the volunteers, the participants, the police, the EMT’s and everyone who lent a hand. The outpouring of support shows great strength in our city and we are proud to be part of this community.

To speak a language we are familiar with and bring up how content can help:  Content – in the form of images and videos from yesterday’s events are more important now than ever. We want to encourage you to share your videos, photos and any other visuals that may help out.

“There has to be hundreds, if not thousands, of photographs, videos and other observations that were made down at that finish line yesterday,” said Timothy Alben, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police. “You might not think it’s significant, but it might have some value to this investigation.” (sourced from NBC
