Happy Birthday Ton!

Happy Birthday Ton! people blender foundation Blender lead developer Ton Roosendaal turns 50 today! Even so, he's one of the freshest and most inspiring minds that I know, and his passion for Blender, art and everything 'Open' never ceases to amaze me. He just has a little less hair.

As a birthday gift, I'd like you to consider making a donation to the Blender Foundation. Let's make his mailbox explode with gifts today!

To donate, use the PayPal button below (donations go straight to the BF), or use the button on the Blender Foundation page. I'm convinced the money will be well spent.

Thanks!

    I have read all the comments (yup I did lol) and I gotta agree with all!!! Haha, so I'll let everybody do my saying, but this I will say,
    Happy birthday Dr. Ton! You're such an inspiring guy! Because of you, I'm reaching my dream too! Thank you for exposing me to the world of 3D in 1998 (yup), the knowledge and technical issues I have grown with, have been proved to help me a lot in the 2d world as an artist. Indeed, this physical interaction of lights and all were an unique way to learn, but was the best way for me. Visual interaction is what I learn the best and Blender had that.
    So hence, you have brought a balancing equation I needed in my dream career! Thank you soooo much! It's a real honor!
    The only thing I regret is that I can't do any donation at the moment (saving money for house.. expensive nowadays), but someday I will like I have did before! :) So yup, count on me, just not right now!
    Once again, Happy birthday! You roooooock!

    You have done what few have - built a great application, nurtured a community around it, and an consequently opened a gateway for millions of people to enjoy 3D, find job opportunities, and share life experiences.

    What a HUGE personal achievement! What a HUGE social contribution! What a guy!

    CONGRATULATIONS, your belief in your vision and values has succeeded and can never be undone but only grow and grow...!!!

    I wish you the best in staying young in mind, body, and heart.

    We are only as old/young as we feel inside.

    I imagine you feel like you are somewhere between 20 and 30 years old depending on the social/work situation.

    You certainly do not look anywhere near 50 years old!

    Is the secret to youth making a good durian smoothie in Blender? The Dutch weather? ;-) Bicycles?

    Ah... it must be 'all the above' and the appreciation of an amazing community.

    As a wiser person than myself once said, "Stay hungry, stay foolish!"

    'Growing up' is for old people.

    Stay young!!!
