The Year in Summary: 2005

~ 17 December 2005 ~

Note: I’ll be taking a hearty break from this site now through January 5. Comments have been temporarily disabled on recent articles (so I don’t have to kill comment spam during the break), and site updates are likely to be infrequent at best. Happy holidays to all!

Wow. What a ride. 2005 was a killer ride, indeed.

My fourth son was born. I made the leap to full-time freelancing. I had the opportunity to do work for Google, March of Dimes, Joyent, English360, Hiram College, Vivabit, and several other great companies. I contributed to a book due out next February. I presented at SXSW 2005 and WebVisions 2005. And much more.

Next year is showing no signs of slowing, with contracts already on the burner, at least two speaking engagements nationally and internationally, and hopefully lots more.

A big thank-you to you, the reader, for your valuable contributions, thoughtful insight, and enjoyable banter. You all keep me coming back to bang away at the keyboard.

While I’m offline, please enjoy a selection of articles from the last 12 months:

Bring on 2006!
