Top this, 2014!

2013 was indeed a year. 2014 is also going to be a year. Hopefully eighty thousand times better than 2013. The highlight for me was getting a kick-ass job at Automattic in October. Now let’s look at some numbers of things that I did the way 2013 would have liked best: Buzzfeed style.
