Thanks for following my journey in 2009. I'm really touched by all the support I've had in the last year. When we all build and design technology, we never consider the side effects - at least I never thought apps such as Blogger and Facebook and Google Talk were the key tools which saved me from going down a deep dark wrong path this year. The way I was able to reconnect with a lot of you guys this year, the kindness and friendship and compassion you've shown me has been more than I ever thought possible. Thank you technology :) Thank you to you that's reading this!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



  1. Thu! Can't wait to hear about your new adventures in the new year! And I love that as a side effect of your business venture, I get to be Cat's food guinea pig. What's not to love??

    Merry Christmas!
