Similar to this time last year, I'm leaving most of the social Internet behind for my winter vacation. I'm going off to an island, and I'm not bringing the noise (though I'll have plenty of funk) with me. In case you missed it, I wrote about this for Fast Company over the summer.

In terms of reaching me, what this means is I'm available via voice and SMS, assuming you have the numbers. If you don't have the numbers, then I'm not available at all until the ninth of January, 2014.

My chief of staff, Julia, is available starting Jan 2. Use the appropriate contact method to reach her.

And for Cultivated Wit business, my co-founder, Brian will be back online Jan 2 as well. Please don't undermine all I've sought to build whilst I'm away on holiday (like I'm British and whatnot).
