Free and clear…

This is it. This is the final issue of 2015! Where DID the time go?

Rusty Blazenhoff

p.s. I’m really craving more opportunities to NOT be at my computer AND to spend more time with interesting people in 2016 (and beyond). If you would like to spend time with me in the future, ping me: Let’s do this thing.

“@Blazenhoff reminds you there is weird doofy geeky magic happening everywhere. It is, to me, fulfillment on the original promise of the web…”
