I love the holidays, except I don’t really care about the gross commercialization of Christmas. I believe you give gifts and spread cheer all the year around and not around Christ’s birthday.
Nevertheless, Christmas break gives me a chance to reflect on the year that was and all the amazing things that happened including finding those incredible moments of joy and cheer. It is an opportunity to thank those who help me get better every year. From my parents to my siblings, their kids and most importantly folks I work with both at GigaOm and True Ventures.
But most of all, I am grateful for all of you who contribute your wisdom in comments and emails. I am thankful that you find time to read what I have to say. But most importantly, the courage you give me to go on. So to all of you a very happy Christmas and a brilliant new year. I look forward to chatting more often with all of you in 2013.
