For me, 2009 went way too quick. Overall, it was also a largely disappointing year on many fronts. Some things that contributed to this I can and have gone into on this blog, others I couldn't and hadn't.
Anywho, here's the highlights of the year in blog entries:
- Half a Decade of Blogging & Rethinking the Whole Thing: 5 year birthday of this blog, and comment stats.
- DRM Walls Crumbling Down & Sickness: I think this will be a significant event in digital content distribution as history goes on.
