    Hey Rob & Asif –
    thanks for noticing Teleport after our little preview release last week! It was as heartwarming to see your sincere confusion around what we might be up to — a good piece of feedback to any startup at our early stage. 🙂

    Very happy to chat more to satisfy the curiosity: sten (at)
