See you in 2010!

I'm about to leave the office for the last time this year and head off on holidays. I've got one more blog-post queued up -- a review of a kids' book that'll go live tomorrow morning -- and that's all you'll hear from me until Jan 11. I'm not going to be taking in email while I'm away. If you send me a message, you'll get an autoresponder telling you to try again after Jan 11, something that I picked up from danah boyd. It's the best answer I've found to resolving the problem of coming back from a nice, relaxing vacation to find 20,000 emails waiting for you. So this is me, signing off.

Thanks for an outstanding 2009, filled with many weird turns, delights shared, pains commiserated over, victories and defeats. I'm off to spend a couple wonderful weeks with my family, and to leave Boing Boing in the hands of my kick-ass co-editors. I'll see you next year.

I'm sure it'll be a doozy.

  1. Happy Holidays Cory,
    You made 2009 a very interesting place in time for at least one person.
    However happy mutants celebrate, do it well!

  2. Have a wonderful and safe vacation!
    Thank you for what I consider to be some of the most entertaining and informative reading I’ve encountered in the interwebs!

  3. Have a nice time with the family. I too picked up that email trick from danah boyd, and it feels great! I haven’t been fired yet, because of that ;-)

  4. Have a great time with your family Cory! I can’t wait to see what the new year brings for all of us.

  5. In the spirit of the season of giving, I’d like to adopt that poor hammock and provide it with the love and companionship it deserves. If someone could send me the information on how to go about that, I would most appreciate it. Merry everything, everyone.

  6. Man, I wish I could afford to take that much vacation, but look at my holiday credit card bill. Just look at it. Great idea with the email too, enjoy the unwind!

  7. What, no year end Banana related posting? How will I shake my head in wonder at your yellow fetish.

    Enjoy your holidays. Relax, refresh and rejoice.

    Same to you Boingers!

    1. It could be a banana hammock, we just need a sufficient endowment to .. research .. the possibilities.
