REMEMBER THE MILK was launched in October 2005 by founders Emily Boyd and Omar Kilani. It started with a simple idea in August 2004 and branched out into a complex website as they continued to integrate many applications and features. Ab Kilani is the software engineer, and Arvid Bux is RTM's support engineer. A stuffed monkey named Bob T. Monkey is also a founder of this website. RTM is actually a small, virtual, Australian company. Everyone does their work from home, which includes 3 different continents! 
RTM was created in order to make task managing easier and more fun. Forget about all those random sticky notes everywhere, put everything in one place!
