December 25, 2005 - January 30, 2009

Ma.gnolia was a small, beautiful, innovative and ever evolving social networking startup and virtually real community.

It wove together the good, like sharing great ideas, the Opens (Open Source, OpenID, OAuth), Microformats, and Give Thanks; the bad, like scaling, spammers and the crash; and, the beautiful: all of the friends and family connecting and sharing their passion with each other and the world.

While there's been nothing quite like it since and I miss the energy we all created - it was of a certain time and place - it lives on through the legacy of sharing and gratitude we can still see woven in the Web today.

Thank you to all of you for all that it was.
