This issue is a celebration of all you wonderful readers who make Web Animation Weekly great!
I wrote a bit about gardening over gatekeeping, the difference between curating a community and connecting its members. While curation is a great way to sort the wheat from the chaff in a bustling work week, it's entirely dependent on the good will and taste of the curator--and no human is perfect. Curation can leave a community vulnerable to elitism, exclusionary practices.
In the spirit of gardening over gatekeeping, I haven't curated any of these entries. Anyone who entered their animation is featured in this issue. Consider this your end of year meet and greet with your fellow readers. I hope you make some friends.
Curation returns next week. Happy 2016!
