Happy Birthday Open Space

Cripes I nearly forgot to post this! It’s the blog’s second birthday today—in blog years that’s surely well past drinking & fighting age. Last year I had the blog’s chart done; a bit of silliness. This year I’d just like to say thanks to all our writers & contributors, & our rotating teams of cohort bloggers who make Open Space such an interesting & dynamic place for this editor to show up to every morning. I’d also like to give special thanks to two people who do a lot of work behind the scenes here: The infinitely resourceful, inventive, & tireless Megan Brian, who you know from the Five Questions & the Flickr pic of the week series, who does so many things I can’t list them here; and Gilbert Guerrero, webmaster, developer, designer and artist, who will answer a frantic phone call or email pretty much any hour of day or night (and while on vacation) and will fix anything gone awry before anyone out there notices.

More, thanks to all of you for reading, listening, thinking and talking here in public with us. The coming year promises many things new & interesting—we’ll have a new group of writers this summer, & look towards the fall, when Open Space will begin hosting regular events on site/in the building. Looking forward to seeing you all in real time & space in the months to come. In the meanwhile, as always, your feedback always welcome: In the comment box or to suzanne at sfmoma dot org.
