This morning I sent an email to our HuffPost team, sharing the news of a major milestone for our company -- one that really struck a chord with me. And you, the members of the HuffPost community, are the heart and soul of this milestone. Whether you have blogged on HuffPost, commented on, shared or talked about a story or just made us a regular part of your media diet, you have been a key part of the conversation we set out to start a little over nine years ago. Indeed, without you, there would be no HuffPost. So thank you for being part of this remarkable journey -- a journey that is still very much in progress. Here is the email I sent to our team.
There are close to 3 billion people using the Internet, and that number is growing quickly. While interacting with nearly half the world's population, whether directly or indirectly, I'd like to think I learned a few things. Here, on my last day at The Huffington Post, I've written down eight of those things.
