This year was a big one for me. I quit the previous company and started freelancing in July, which was one of the toughest decisions in my life, but I’m very sure I made a right choice. Or rather, I should have chosen this path earlier. The jobs I love, wonderful people and companies I’m working for, great business relationships, etc. etc. I can’t be happier. And I’m so honored to have a chance to work for SOFTBANK this year.
On top of that, there’s one big and exciting project I was involved in, which will be released in January at the earliest. I’m really excited but I can’t reveal it now yet.
Doing the freelance work is part of the reason why I’m making fewer posts on this blog this year; practical and promising ideas go to my client companies. I’d appreciate your understanding on that.
Any way, here are the top 10 posts made this year.
1. Funny USB Memory Stick #6 Final
2. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: January 2010
3. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: November 2010
4. World Cleanest Graffiti— iPhone App Concept
5. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: April 2010
6. Hungry Batteries: Rechargeable Battery Concept
7. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: May-June 2010
8. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: February 2010

10. Calendar Desktop Wallpaper: August 2010
The calendar wallpapers have been unexpectedly popular, so most of the top 10 posts are about calendars. Dew and Frostie did good jobs, but are out of the running a bit.
As for wallpapers, I have been using famous quotes since last year, but I’ll change the style (not because I don’t like wallpapers with quotes but using a quote is kind of practice for me to get closer to my ideal wallpapers).
I thank all of your support and interest. I’ll be having fun again next year so come visit petitinvention regularly. I’ll also keep tweeting my thoughtsand Flickr!ing my photos.
In 2011, I’m planning to visit the U.S. (January?) and Europe (March or April). I’ll make time to meet lots of people from 2011, so if you’re there, let me know.
Thank you very much! I wish all of you a very happy new year.
