5 Years of the Lean Blog


I just realized that Sunday was what appears to be the 5th anniversary / birthday of my Lean Blog. I always let that milestone slip by. This was my first modest post on January 3, 2005. Other early posts can be found here.

Maybe over the weekend, I'll post some proper reflections about this journey (without calling it “hansei,” I suppose).

Thanks to all of my readers!
