Happy 2002 everyone. Here's what the New Year brought to the lives of evolt members.
- Mike King celebrated his birthday in evolt-style, painting London red (and green and blue) with a beervolt. How old is that now, Mike?
- Portland evoltistas got together and did food as well as beer. An interesting innovation...
Awards, kudos and other recognition
- Matthew Garrett's site made for photographer Norman Mauskopf, http://www.normanmauskopf.com, has made it into Graphis Interactive Design 2, an international print collection of graphic design driven web sites. Publication date is unknown at this point, but it should come out in the first half of this year. We're all looking forward to it. Those are awesome photos.
- Ron White, a well-established member in the evolt.org community, appeared on Jeopardy! on January 23rd, winning $12,001. Ben Dyer, yet another evolt member, has posted some AVI files of Ron's appearance. On January 24th, as returning champion, Ron bet the bundle on the Final Jeopardy question, but lost. Congrats, Ron! But... where was the evolt.org plug?! :)
- Jeff Howden has had the skills which produced a lot of evolt's ColdFusion code recognised by being recently selected by New Riders publishing company to help review a couple of book proposals and potentially assist with editing for technical accuracy of a future ColdFusion book.
- Morbus Iff, another worthy evolt.org member, becomes famous with his Apache / OS X articles. The latest has just been published on the O'Reilly Network: Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X, Part 4. Go and count the number of example names used in the article who also happen to be chatters on evolt.org's IRC channel: #evolt... ;)
Personal Happenings...stop press... Isaac sold his house at a nice profit just before this went out and will be shouting drinks tonight... If you wanted to buy such a desirable property, sorry, you're too late I'm afraid.
