Today is my son Max's 18th birthday. Although he is not my oldest, in many ways he is my eldest. It's been a pleasure watching and helping him grow into a man, and it will be difficult to let him go off to college in the fall.
He's made various appearances in this blog over the years, making a micro Lego AT-AT and social disturbances at 10, a Flash movie at 11, scientific observations and programming first steps at 13, innovative cinema at 14, a stop-motion movie for French class and an OS X application at 16.
I'm very proud of Max and everything he's done, and I'm looking forward to what's next.
Happy Birthday, Max!
