It's true, after four years of running, I'm moving on.

It's been an interesting ride, to say the least. When I started building the site back in 2007, I knew the idea of combining powerful search tools with user reviews had real potential, but looking back, it's amazing to see just how much impact it had.

To date, has served more than 1.8 million people (and 17.5 million page views), according to Google Analytics. stats

Thanks to the thousands of people who submitted reviews, rated modules, reported bugs, and helped spread the word about my little project.

To the thousands of Drupal developers that use the site every day, don't worry, you're in good hands. iO1 has the time and resources to continue bringing innovation to the site, and I look forward to seeing where it goes next.

Thanks to all my sponsors over the years: Acquia, DrupalConnect, AN Hosting, DrupalCon, OSTraining and iCopyright. And a very special thanks to everyone who donated personally. Keeping the site running all these years wouldn't have been possible without you.
