I really want to thank you for all the work you have put into OpenGLAM.
When we started this initiative in the beginning of 2012 we had no idea
where this could go and I am confident that without your experience and
guidance we would never be where we are today. All the best with the new
challenge. I am not going to say goodbye or anything cause I am sure we
will be seeing each other!
Thanks again, and we know where to find you when we are out of ideas :)
Looking forward to OKFest!
