Arianna Huffington

It's been 10 years since The Huffington Post was born, on May 9, 2005. We've done a lot of reminiscing during our anniversary week, but our real focus is on looking ahead. That's why the theme for our 10-year anniversary is "The Next 10." To celebrate this milestone, we're rolling out a range of special projects, launches and events -- the high and the low, the serious and the playful -- and all of them have something to say about where we're coming from and especially where we're going. I'm grateful to everyone who has been a part of HuffPost from Day 1. And I'm especially grateful to everyone who has read, viewed and shared what we're doing on HuffPost. We are here because of you.
