As folks who saw my recorded speech at the London event of this year’s Net Awards know, I can’t even say thanks without starting to blubber all over the place. And tears falling on a MacBook Pro do not a happy day make.
To that end, may I just say thank you to all the many named and un-named designers, developers and folks working to build The Web to an ethic and quality that Net Magazine itself has showcased throughout the years.
There are many unsung heroes out there – tens of thousands. Maybe millions? I got lucky getting in so early and being able to work with countless (the list is far more than my poor memory can manage) incredibly influential humans as my mentors and mentresses. I am also a very squeaky wheel and demand attention! Nevertheless, we’re doing this together, and that’s what makes it challenging and ultimately, so truly rewarding.
The real thanks goes to all humans working on the idea that the world can be uplifted, communications improved and our personal and global needs, desires, goals and dreams be clarified and made manifest.
