This July marks the one-year anniversary of Steam Labs, a project we
launched last year with three experiments and big ambitions to improve Steam
through public experimentation and iteration. We are celebrating with the

Recommendations, introduced to Steam via Labs.
Steam Labs is a place to explore the potential for new and improved versions of
Steam, and the most valuable part of that process is you. (Yes you, in the back
with the lab coat! And the rest of you, too.)
We've put together a bit more background on what we've learned in Labs during
the past year: How it led us to ship four experiments, shelve two, and continue
to design and refine even more along the way, as we look ahead to the future.
In all, we couldn't have done it without YOU! (Yes, still YOU!) So thank you for
being a part of it, and here's to another year of Steam Labs!
