As tradition would have it, this is the first day of the new year. This is the first day of 11111011110.
As tradition would also have it, the New Year also means that there was plenty of partying and reveling throughout the night leading up to and beyond the stroke of midnight. One such party was reported as having the largest fireworks show in history. Seeing some of the video and pictures – it was a spectacular show. Check it here.
If you are interested in some of the other worldwide events, here is a pretty good slideshow of some of those parties too.
Another tradition that comes with New Year’s day is the quarterly announcement for MVP renewals (or newals) from Microsoft. If you happen to know somebody that was recently announced has being an MVP for the next year – tell them thanks.
