Hi everyone,

I’m on a much needed vacation enjoying the beach and the sun in the Caribbean.

That means no posting from me for a while (though since brand tags launched I’m sure you’ve gotten used to it.

What I do have is some really smart people who have agreed to post entries for me over the next few days.

I’ve given them no brief or guidelines, so it’s completely up to them. I hope you enjoy and I’ll see you all when I get back.

Best regards,

PS – brand tags 840k tags … I’m pretty excited.
