One of the best decisions I made was to create a Hubski account, 63 days later, after you prodded me to do so. I remember being intimidated by your description of what should be posted. "Thoughtful content." Wtf is that?
Probably 90 days or so later I would formally join you as a co-founder of the coolest web community ever. I remember when we were sitting outside at Zingermans Roadhouse in Ann Arbor when you asked me if I'd like to join you.
Think about how much we have accomplished together here on Hubski and on our various other projects. Think about how much Hubski has influenced our lives and the friendship we have with each other and our other friends we've invited to the site. Think about all the friends we have made that we would have never met otherwise. I'll not list them because it's too many and I'd forget someone.
We have had a lot of help to get where we are -from the community and from people outside of the community. -our wives and family have been MORE than patient.
I see no reason whey we will not be celebrating your 4000 days on Hubskinin another 5.5 years.
Thanks for starting this all and letting me join you in its infancy.
Everyone, there was a time when we would get only one comment a day that wasnt mk and I talking to each other and that comment tended to be alpha0, ecib, mikesteve or cgod :)
I regert that my experiment in going without net connection at home and dumping the smart phone for a basic handset does not permit for smooth interactions anymore. But anyway, what is really special about Hubski is that the social net materializes in the real world. (Will come in handy if someone ever pulls the plug on the net.)
