Six Colors: Week 52 »
Six Colors passed an exciting milestone this week: their first year since the site was started.
It’s a big week this week. In many ways, the biggest week on the Apple calendar, with the annual fall iPhone event scheduled for Wednesday.
For me it’s a milestone in a few other ways, too. This week marks a year since I left IDG, and it’s also week 52 of the existence of this site. Next week will be the first anniversary of Six Colors.

Cancer is a terrible thing, but places like St. Jude are fighting the battle to save lives and get rid of these diseases permanently. Running a place like St. Jude is expensive, but every bit of funding helps them continue to make priceless changes.
