It is a little overwhelming for me to look at how much this place has grown in the last 12 months. Our monthly traffic now tops 3.2 million pageviews with visitors coming from more than 200 different countries. More than 27,000 of you follow Booooooom on Twitter, and our Facebook family has grown to nearly 42,000!

So I want to thank all of you! It was your support for the site that allowed me to bring our Small Victories show to Hong Kong and then follow it up with another show here in Vancouver! It was also your incredible submissions to our Little Drifters project that spread all over the internet like dandelion seeds, inspiring people as far away as Armenia to launch similar projects. The kind of community we have here is rare, I don’t see it on any other site. Thanks for spending so much time around here, commenting on articles, getting involved in projects, sharing links on Twitter, and interacting with each other on Facebook! I feel really blessed to call this a job.

This next year I’ll be doing my best to continue cultivating a community of creative people (and aliteration). I will continue hunting and gathering art but I also have a few things planned that are bigger than anything I’ve attempted so far. So I’m a little anxious. It’s good to be anxious I think! I hope my successes this year outnumber my failures, but if I don’t fail a bunch in 2011 it will mean I didn’t try hard enough.

Last year I posted 64 photos by 64 photographers.

This year I’ve collected 75 photos by 75 photographers that I came across in 2010. These photos weren’t necessarily produced this year, I simply encountered them for the first time in the last 12 months.

I’m gonna take a week off and spend Christmas holidays with my family. I’ll be back at it first week of January!

Happy New Year you guys! Enjoy the photos!

Skate and Create

Transworld’s Skate and Create 2010 videos are now online and one entry instantly put a smile on my face. In an age of HD this, and megapixel that, Etnies took it back to 1995! This is proof that all you need is a Hi8 camera, baggy jeans, and people who are down to have some fun!

Watch the video below! Warning: If you skated in the 90’s this just might bring a tear to your eye! If anyone needs me I’ll be waxing the curb outside my house.

Ohhhhh Canadaaaaaa!

Everyone in Vancouver is partying right now! I love it! Team Canada dominated Norway 8-0 (sorry Norway) and we took to the streets!

Vancouver 2010 / Tickets Giveaway

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.

As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).

Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.
