It's hard to believe almost six years have passed since I signed up for YouTube under the oddly named Jon4Lakers account.  As I look back at the success the company has had, I am constantly reminded of how thankful I am to the audience.  You let me live my dream.  I never would have expected to be able to play with cellphones and laptops for a living.  This is my passion, and my love, and I am so grateful that you give me the opportunity. It is one I will never take for granted.

While 500,000 subscribers is an incredible milestone, what's even more exciting to me is the family we have here at TechnoBuffalo.  From the staff to the audience, we are all part of the same geek family.  It doesn't matter where you come from, when you are reading TechnoBuffalo, or watching one of our videos, you are family.  I know you don't always agree with me, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support, encouragement and criticism.  Here's to the next 500,000!
