As Paul Roeland said at the Dutch Plone User Day yesterday, Plone is in its fifteenth year, proving that it is sustainable software, and we can and should work on it in a sustainable way, with a healthy life-work balance.

>> There were two triggers for this conclusion. One was, of course, Rob leaving Four Digits and the process in "reinventing" our company. The other was a remark by Timo during the Anniversary Sprint where we talked a bit about why he stopped playing drums, which boiled down to "that's how things go". It made me think if I was ready to give up on that just now - I'm not.

>> In all, thank you for an awesome and educational time in the FWT. Hopefully see you guys soon!
