Year One of Optimize and Prophesize

Coda“It’s all one song!”
– Neil Young

This month marks my first year of blogging. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience that I look forward to continuing with forever. Special thanks to Jamie Roche who encouraged me (actually I believe he forced me) to start blogging. Matt Roche for the friendly page views competition that always gets me out of writers block and to Avinash and Rand whose blogs I took (and continue to take) inspiration from.

As a brief recap, here are some of the 84 posts to date that either have proved to be very popular or didn’t get the response I anticipated:

Thanks also to everyone that has commented and contacted me both here and via email and those of you that have thought enough of these musings to make them a part of your weekly information consumption.

Rave On,

Jonathan
