tales from urban dilettantia


Fröhliche Weihnachten

My dear friends, family, internet peeps, gaming buddies, fellow crazy bicycle enthusiasts, colleagues and so forth,

I wanted to give you something this year that was about you – the collective you.  Throughout 2009, you’ve continued to inspire, inform and entertain me in so very many ways.  And so, in your honour, I’ve given a little money to four of the causes you’ve been most passionate about throughout the year.  These, in no particular order, are Electronic Frontiers Australia (internet filtering & censorship), BeyondBlue Depression Research (mental health), Community Midwifery Western Australia (birth choices) and 350.org (climate change).

Thank you for all you do to make my world, our world, a better place.
