happy new years everyone! 2009 was interesting. we’ve moved from xanga to aim to blogs to facebook really. and each time the community got a little bigger. you had a handful of people on xanga, then some on AIM, now facebook combines almost all that. new way to interact/find/be inspired by new and old friends everyday. for the first time ever, we’re getting news everyday coming to us w/out having to find out about it.

anyhoo i wanted to thank those that keep’s neaato inspired. as the image above says: i love nice people that make cool things.

for many people, it’s hard for them to find inspiration. for me it’s opposite, i’m inspired every day/minute looking at a million things online, thanks mostly to those below me.
