My plan was to write a looking-back on 2007 looking-forward to 2008 kind of post yesterday (like last year), but since I have a child time seems to evaporate before my eyes. Priorities can change fast with the arrival of a newborn. 2007 was an absolute top year for me. Business wise it was a booming year, with traffic on Tudou.com and game.com.cn growing by hundreds of percent over the past year. I did a few new angel investments, and so far all of them are doing fairly well (and one or two are doing extremely well). A highlight was the Tibet bike ride that Gary, my dad and I did in April/May, a fantastic experience. And of course the arrival of my son Scott was the most wonderful way of ending the year.
Not sure how 2008 can top the past year. The most important thing for me is for my family to stay healthy, to enjoy what I am doing and to spend a lot of time with Scott and Grace. Also this year you can of course keep on following my business and private experiences on this blog. Plans for next year include for example climbing Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain) with Gary and my dad, and of course attending the Olympic Games in Beijing. No predictions here for this year, I’ll take it as it comes.
Happy New Year!
