Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This is also the 9th anniversary of the This Week in Spring blog series. I started it the first Tuesday after the new year in January 2011. NINE years is a long time, and it’s been — and continues to be — a ton of fun.

I’ve never missed an installment — every Tuesday for almost a decade, come heck or high water — I get this done. It’s always on Tuesday, my time — whatever time that is. If I’m in Tokyo or Shanghai or Sydney, then the installment may very well post sometime in most people’s Monday, or if I’m in California or Hawaii or South America, then it might be posted sometime early into most people’s Wednesday. But it’s always my Tuesday. Sometimes, I’ve had to cheat and apply the Hawaii rule: it’s still Tuesday if it’s still Tuesday in Hawaii! But, it’s always Tuesday. Things have gotten easier for me. Nowadays, plenty of airplanes have Wi-Fi. And, our blog software now supports scheduled posts. So, almost no reason I should ever miss an installment unless I’m very busy.

I find that this exercise — of finding the latest and greatest, analyzing it, and sharing it — has been very beneficial for me. It’s not only connected me to the zeitgeist of an ever-expanding, amazing ecosystem, it’s also connected me to you: you can’t know how much it means to me when people send, or direct messages (@starbuxman) with their exciting new content to post. I love that enthusiasm. It’s better than coffee! Thank you, community. You’re epic, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
