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.
In Davos last month we announced "What's Working," a global HuffPost editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of what's working. By shining a light on these stories, we hope that we can scale up these solutions and create a positive contagion. You've heard of copycat crimes. We want What's Working to inspire copycat solutions.
