When I created a list of Atlanta’s tech blogs back in May, it was a simple tool for me to use to try and find my next “big adventure” by scouring the happenings and events of the Atlanta startup world through the eyes of their blogs. It never occurred to me that it could become anything other than that simple project. But indeed it has become part of the fabric of the Atlanta tech startup ecosystem. For that, I say a very loud and clear THANK YOU to you, our daily reader.
Whether you read every blog every day or not – and believe it or not, more than one reader has told me they really do read every one! – I hope that in some small way, the Daily Digest keeps you informed, up to date, and in the know with whoever your favorite Atlanta startups may be. So, thank you for subscribing, reading, sharing, and participating in what has become much more than a simple tool for me.
As part of my “thank you”, I’m sharing with you a letter penned by Edward Winslow, one of the leaders present at the very first Thanksgiving in 1621. I hope his words carry a similar meaning to you this year, and cause you to give thanks for all that you have, all that you are, and all that you do.
“Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, among other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed upon our governor, and upon the captain, and others. And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want that we often wish you partakers of our plenty.”
Thank you again for your support.
