As we move into 2011, and since (checks around, calls out, hears echo) I’m the only one around while the rest of Nerdist Nation is out partying, I figured I should take a moment and thank you for what turned out to be a very good 2010 for Nerdist.com and the Hardwick Empire.
This was, after all, the year the Nerdist Podcast took over the known universe, which was nice. Web Soup also infected a growing number of minds, and, starting in May, Nerdist.com became home to a growing number of contributors who helped expand Chris’ vision and brought their own perspectives to Nerd Culture. Development continued on a related social network about which you’ll hear more in 2011. Chris is working on his book, too. And, late in the year, I crashed the party.
It’s all, of course, because of you. And lots of Doctor Who news, but mostly you. Without you, we’d be talking to ourselves here. (We do enough of that on our own time) Having a loyal, committed, highly participatory audience gives us plenty of motivation to make this place better, and we’re going to try to do just that in 2011. At least, I think we are. Nobody else is here. (Hello? Hello??? Sigh)
So, again, thank you, and… wait, what’s the catchphrase? Keep circulating the tapes? No… Klaatu barada nikto? Oh, right…
Enjoy your burrito!
