Read my 2017 Year Review. My experiences, learning, posts and projects. A look back on the years output and my progress on the web in 2017AD.
Change, especially when it comes out the blue and/or feels unnecessary rarely goes down well. However, if I were the sports new owners I probably would have wanted to put my stamp on the sport too, knowing full well people hate change.
