Today is 9 years since I started this blog. Year 9 was super productive. I wrote 40 blog posts, gave Browserling a new look, took the company to the next level, launched web developer tools, launched a new webcomic about programmers, became hacker-in-residence at hackers/founders, wrote a ton of code and had a lot of fun.
