2009, A Year In Review

2009, A Year In Review

Congratulations! You made it through 2009!  What a hellava year huh?  As the world prepares for the Ball to drop of 2010, I want to step back and take a look at how far iSquint and the lighting industry has come in just one year. With iSquint, there have been some major changes, upgrades and announcements.  I think the most important was finally announcing that I, Justin Lang and the person behind iSquint. But before that big announcement came the one year anniversary of iSquint.net being on line with a week long celebration right before LDI 2009. With that celebration, came a new site design. I put in a lot of time to re-organize and re-designing the site and from what I hear, it is getting a positive response.

At the time of the re-launch, I added some more features to the site such as the iSquint Podcast, the iSquint YouTube Channel and the Friday Flickr Lighting Porn. These are just a few ways to bring you more exciting and closer look at things happening with in the industry. There are still a couple of things that are still in the works, but I will save that for 2010.

During 2009, I personally was exposed to some new and exciting products and have loved sharing them with you here.  One thing I am most proud and honored by, was being published in the December 2009 issue of PLSN for my show report on LDI this year in Orlando.  This is just the beginning and hopefully more to come.

2009 was one hellava year for not only me, but for iSquint as well! Take a look at some of the top read articles for 2009 as well as some of the top key word searches.
