    2009, Big % Increase & GraphicRiver Beta InvitesPercent
    Looking back on last year, Envato had a pretty big 2008 by any measure. We jumped from 4 sites to 13, a million monthly visitors to 5 million, and while our team began the year numbering 12, we ended it totalling 55 talented reviewers, editors, managers, developers, writers and support staff. With such a crazy year in the rearview mirror, it is with no small excitement that I can say that 2009 is going to make 2008 pale in comparison. And today I'm here to make a huge announcement for all the authors of our marketplaces, give beta invites for a major new site, and give sneak previews for some of our Envato plans!Read More…

At the very least, take ten minutes to review the framework. You can always press the delete key...though I doubt you will! Read More…

    An Interview with Dion Almaer200x200
    Dion Almaer, a British expat living in Silicon Valley, tries to build user experiences that developers care about at Mozilla in a role that allows him to think about making life easier for Open Web developers."I believe that the Open Web is not just the best platform ever to have been created, but that it is just the beginning.
