End of Year Notes

Two years ago I started writing this blog in the hope that someone, anyone really, would read it. Motorola generously funded the effort even though corporate blogging was hardly a common practice. We plodded along for a while, and slowly readership grew. Then the feedback started to roll in.  I began having increasingly interesting conversations with new sources both inside and outside Motorola based on content on the blog. Not only did audience volume increase, but people whose opinions I respect immensely were letting me know they’d added the Motorola blog to their RSS readers.

On the final day of 2008, there are a number of people I’d like to thank for making this blog successful. First, thanks to Paul for backing the effort from the beginning, finding the budget, and protecting the blog when it wasn’t necessarily popular to do so. Thanks to Anya and Therese for supporting the blog in year two, selling its success internally, and helping me dig for interesting content. Thanks to all the people inside Motorola who have suffered my prodding questions, particularly the sources I’ve returned to over and over again – you know who you are. And thanks to all the people externally who have been supportive and willing to work with me (or link to me) even when I’ve made a pest of myself, most especially Jeff B., CZ, Paul R., and above all, Dave Z.

Here’s to 2009, and hopefully a year three that’s even better than years one and two. Happy New year, everyone.
