I wanted to take a moment to say a very special thank you to Dougal MacPherson who drew the spectacular cartoon header for my article that appeared in A List Apart today.

The sketch is full of whimsy and has an entertaining yet subversive subtext that so wonderfully underlines the piece. I couldn’t have asked for more creative and apropos analogy much less a piece of artwork.

I’ll also give an exuberant thank you to my fantastic editor Nick Tucker who stuck with me through thick, think, time zone differences, and head colds for each of us to finally get the piece across the finish line. I’ll send him my apologies again for the flabbiness of the original draft which should have had one more go-round before he bothered to read it. But in the end it’s far better for his care and attention.

And finally, a special thanks and a big shout out to the brilliance, creativity, and tenacity of all those (big and small) in the IndieWeb community who so heavily influenced not on the piece, but my life in general. You’re all making the web and the world a better place for the care you put into your work (and play).

Thanks again Dougal, Nick, and IndieWeb!
