Happy anniversary, Dave.

I found you because of rock flipping, an event I was first made aware of by Gin Petty, one of Kentucky’s most talented craftspersons. http://ginpetty.com/

The first post I remember reading was your open source post. I was impressed by that because I agreed with it and you don’t see too many people arguing that way. I’m glad to have the reminder to revisit it.

I keep coming back because I like the way you write, the way your mind works, and your videos of porcupines and other exotic mountain creatures (like tree-climbing ground squirrels).

I’m glad to hear that you’ve got some good out of all this, too. Hope you’ll stick around. You enrich my life. (Though I guess Wendell Berry would tell me to get away from the computer and enrich my own damn life.)
