A year of many changes: physical and mental. I completed my switch to using Linux exclusively, gave several talks and workshops in places near and far, visited Africa for the first time (and loved it), released two eBooks which I am really proud of, visited Detroit for the first time (and loved it), relished my sixth journey to lovely Malta, learned a few key things about myself, co-curated the 10th edition of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, made some positive decisions for my physical health and mental well-being, met several extraordinary people — including a person who grows giant vegetables in a tiny Dutch village who was born in the same Canadian city as me, broke my weightlifting records, and tasted Champagne at several chateaux on a drive through the Champagne region — taking a few bottles home for a very special upcoming occasion in 2015.
