While I know that we have many readers around the world, it's Thanksgiving Day here in the United States and I wanted to thank all of the contributors to the Eamon world over the past year or so.

Almost a year ago, I asked for volunteer guest writers to help contribute to this blog. Thank you to Frank Black for being the first to step up. Frank's introduction coincided with his timely update of Eamon Deluxe, which gave the Eamon world quite a bit to talk about over the past several months. Frank has also volunteered to help me out with the web page which had become a little bit stale as I was finishing up my MBA. Thank you Frank!

Next is Thomas Ferguson. Thomas began writing on the blog recently, but has expanded the Eamon coverage into other platforms and systems that I didn't even know were available. Thank you for your contributions as well!

Bill Martens and the fine people at Call-APPLE provide hosting support for the domain. I would be remiss if I didn't express my thanks to him as well.

A few other people have helped spread the good word about Eamon. I wanted to thank Wade Clarke for introducing Eamon into the wider world of interactive fiction by entering Leadlight into the IF competition. While it didn't win, it gave us an exposure that had not previously been seen. Also, thank you to Ken Gagne for including Eamon into the Juiced.GS article last year. 

Finally, while Don Brown receives a lot of credit for writing the original program, Eamon wouldn't be where it is today without the hard work of John Nelson and Tom Zuchowski. I wanted to thank both of you as well for your contributions to the Eamon world.

We have a bright year of Eamon ahead! Let's go out and slay a dragon to celebrate!

Matthew, I have a suspicion that without your stewardship Eamon's legacy in 2012 would be a few hundred megabytes of files on asimov. You've performed a marvelous service in maintaining the site. Thank you for all your efforts.
