GitHub hits 3 million users

In a world where hitting 10, 50, and 100 million users seems to be the goal it is nice to see that a service can be a massive success at a fraction of that scale. GitHub just hit 3,000,000 users and their growth rate is still on the incline:

This latest batch of one million amazing developers joined GitHub in just the last five months.

GitHub isn't for your mom (though I'm sure the team at GitHub would appreciate you teaching her how to use git). But it seems like GitHub is being found by exactly who it is for. And that's awesome.

Congratulations to the entire team (especially my friends there).
