    Thank you for another great year of content.
    You guys inspire me to keep on with my side projects and remind me it is possible to earn an income on projects outside work and that side projects can become a main source of income.

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to your podcasts in the new year with the new look Pluggio and the official release for Appignite.

  2. I’d probably badger you guys into getting a new site design commissioned already :p

    Am really glad Jason still remembered the first donation that I’ve made and Justin, you’re right that I’m a very early listener to the show, since episode 8 (the Cassandra episode) to be exact. 🙂 [and I still remembered that it’s from a mention from High Scalability blog].

    And yeah, keep up the great work and hope I’ll still be able to make a Christmas gift donation to you guys next year 😉

  3. Merry TechZing XMas and happy holidays to all! Thank you for another great year!

  4. Tom Horn says:

    Merry Christmas guys and all the best for the new year. Looking forward to another year of shows 🙂

  5. A year full of great shows, thank you so much.

    Merry Christmas and i which you a great 2012.

    All the best

  6. I believe the organic vs conventional farming “study” you referred to is the Farming Systems Trial. I haven’t read the full report yet but it’s clearly suspect. The Rodale Institution is strongly biased. They promote organic farming. I would be shocked and surprised if they ran a study that showed conventional farming to be better than organic.

  7. Jason says:

    @Robin, @Felix, @Philippe Monnet, @Tom Horn, @Joao Da Silva – Thanks guys and “Happy Christmas” to you too! We’ll do our best to give you guys another year of the “weekly distraction” podcast. 😉

  8. Jason says:

    @Dan DeFelippi – And that’s what I get for not checking my sources!! Sorry about that. I’ll look more into it and correct my statements on this weekend’s show. Thanks for letting me know.

    Happy New Year,

  10. Wow! Did not expect this show so soon. Somewhat like a belated Christmas present for me. Certainly made tiling the kitchen floor more enjoyable, in fact I listened to it twice during the day.

  11. Hope you had a great Christmas and new year.
    Just want to say thanks for making the podcasts. I’ve been listening for a few months now and really enjoy the content and discussions.

  12. Jason says:

    @Ben Boyter – I can’t believe you listened to the show twice! Now that is a compliment. 😉

    I can barely get myself to listen to a show even once and I have to in order to write the show notes! It’s just so painful listening to myself make mistake after mistake – tedious monologue, misstatement, another monologue, another misstatement, five “you know”s in less than a minute, pushed a topic WAY too long, told another irrelevant story, … sigh.

  13. Jason says:

    @Lee Jacobson – Thanks so much for the positive feedback. As you can tell from my previous comment, we can definitely use it. 😉

  14. Apparently we British people say “Happy Christmas” although personally my family have always said Merry Christmas. I think we do both! But saying “Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year” has two happys and sounds weird. Whatevs…

    Thanks so much for a great podcast guys. I’ve enjoyed listening to each and every one of them and have been honoured to be part of a couple of them too!

    Good luck in 2012 and may I suggest you make your “donate” button larger on your site. I only just noticed it the other day – it’s a tiny link! **clips your ears** Sort it out!
