Even though it's still 8 hours away here in Portugal, the New Year celebrations have already started in New Zealand and Australia for example (the image below is from Sydney). We here at ICO would like to wish everyone, to those who've entered already and to those who are stil waiting, a very Happy New Year. May 2009 be better than 2008 in every way and your wishes come true.

As for us at ICO and you reading, I wonder what would be a nice milestone in 2009... hmmmmmm... Haiku Beta for example? Or even better, Haiku R1!!! We'll just have to wait and see. So once more, Happy New Year! Now go and celebrate and have fun.
