Plastic 2.0 is alive!
Nobody took me up on my offer to hand over the blog, so I'll just leave it to wither away quietly. The good -- nah, make that great -- news, is that Shane's replacement is actually up and running! Thus, this place no longer serves a purpose anyway.
Hopefully, there won't be a need for a "Waiting for 'Trees and Things'" blog for a while, so good luck to all of you. Plastic is dead! Long live Plastic!
