Once upon a time there was a middle-aged British man who refused to pack his bright dreams of creativity neatly into a pension fund, and instead, took up the tools of technology in order to run wild and free like his hairy heroes. Three days a week, for three and half years he wrote whatever came to mind, took photographs, made audio and video recordings, and generally wasted his time in the belief that somehow, the process would become meaningful for him and who knows, other people he had yet to meet.

As a result he became hugely rich and a global celebrity deeply immersed in the brave new world of citizen media, and played his small but occasionally significant part in the revolution which swept across civilisation shortly before its cataclysmic demise sometime early in the period which the locals called the 21st Century, and which the Mayans referred to as the 14th great age.

That man, of course, was yours truly, Deek Deekster.

Just looking at the statistics for funk.co.uk during 2007 (not yet finished, obviously) this morning – by the end of this month, I will have had over 5 million hits this year. Not bad for a humble blogger who stopped for a month and quite deliberately shook off a clammy bunch of expectations. I’ve felt freedom return since then, steadily and unstoppably.

I’m also enjoying quite a few downloads of the music and video podcasts I’ve been making – I’ve even begun using my YouTube account, just to make it easy on folks.

For no reason other than I just looked, here are my top five web pages for December 2007:

I love the fact that the incumbent holiday season means I’m being found for “Free Christmas Pictures” and “Gherkin”. I’ll do some more rooting around and analyse the activity some more once my ISP enables “Year View”. Meanwhile, I’ve some editing to do on Flat 34 #6 and #7 video podcast.
