Thanks for everything Bruce.  And all this happens on the day I hit Diamond. Couldn't have done it without your vision.

Bruce, thank you so much for all you've done. I echo everyone else in this thread when I say you will be missed and you have touched so many lives here. Enjoy spending your time with your beautiful family ... I think that is also my dream job one day, too.

iStock has changed my life.  This is where I was able to slip the bonds of an Office Slob and explore my creatitivity.  It is this place where I met the love of my life,  my husband.  It is the place, that without it, I doubt that I would have a career that I love, that fulfills me and makes me get up in the morning with a sense of purpose. 


There are not words adequate enough for me to express my undying thanks to the one visionary individual who not only changed an industry, but changed my life (as well as so many others) for the best.  Knowing how much of yourself you have given to iStock & its community.  How much time and sacrifice you have made, I simply can not sum up the immensity of my gratitude in the words "Thank You for everything, Bruce!" 


Enjoy your newfound time with your beautiful family, you deserve it.


I know I said I could not sum it up... and there are just not words enough but:
Thank you, Bruce.  Thank you for everything.


All my Love, Thanks & Support,
Kelly

With tears of gladness and sadness I wish you all the best.  You always responded and I am truly grateful for being a part of this fine organization you created.   Differences there are among us from time to time, but your example has set the tone for who we are and, I am confident, who we shall remain.  A group of truly creative, sharing, hard working people.  Thank you.

Well boss, it's a long time since that interview at the Shamrock. I told you I didn't know the first thing about photography and you hired me anyway. I had no idea what I was getting into. The last four years have been absolutely fantastic for me - I've been around the world, I've met fantastic people, and I've learned more than I would've thought possible. Thanks for taking the chance on me, thanks for all the opportunities, and thanks for being patient with old Analogue here.

Anyway, I'll see you in Calgary. You and me and Lobo can go out and try and get his nose broken again.

I haven't had the good fortune to meet you or Brianna yet but rest assured that your vision and passion live on through all those who reside in this place. I'm honoured to be part of this team you created and a blessing to be able to do this what I love for a living. Enjoy your new free time and you family and I look forward to seeing your portfolio grow smile

Don't think for a minute that I'm going away, though. I'm still a photographer after all, and I'll finally have time to take pictures now. I just won't have one of those Admin badges and hammer anymore. Please don't Wiki my keywords unless I really deserve it.


You may give up those badges but please never give up that crown! biggrin

Thanks Bruce, for everything. It must have been a tough decision, but you can't go wrong with putting family first.

You and iStock have changed my life in so many ways. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet you, be recruited by you, to have worked for and with you. What an immense honor.

Thank you Bruce

Bruce - what can I say?

Thank you does not seem to encompass all I feel and am truly grateful for thanks to YOU; to your incredible vision and having the courage to follow your dream, your hard work, your dedication, your passion, and your heart and soul. To me, you will always be iStock.


Like so many other, you truly changed my life, and every day I am grateful for that gift you bestowed me - I simply could not imagine my life without iStock being part of it..


I will never, ever forget the first time I saw you... in Austin at my very first lypse... I had butterflies in my stomach about the whole event, let alone meeting people from this awesome place. Fittingly, and completely by coincidence, the very first physical meeting I have with another iStocker was with YOU! The man who sat right at the top - that was just unreal.


As if this wasn't enough, what blew me away further was the fact that you knew who I was and greeted me with a huge smile and made me feel so welcome; you were so incredibly down-to-earth that I instantly relaxed - that is who you are to everyone here - someone we can all call a friend and feel comfortable with.


You are an incredible man... I wish you and your family love, luck, happiness, and success in everything you attempt.


I admire, respect and thank you from the bottom of my heart Bruce, and am so privileged to know you, and be part of this incredible world you created.


Thank you, thank you.

Like so many others iStock has in many ways changed my life.   


Those first few sales pushed me to develop my skills to new levels and while most of my photographic work is now outside the realm of stock, who knows if I'd have ever ventured down those roads if not for that little boost from iStock.  


 


All the best to you.

A big "THANK YOU" from the bottom of my heart for everything you've done, what you've made, and who you are. iStock has changed the world of design and photography, I'm proud to have been able to be a little part of it. Best of luck Bruce. You'll always be an inspiration.

Hmmm ... This is very sad, I think. I couldn't be happier that you are moving on to spend more time with family, friends, your camera, etc. I think that aspect of your decision is wonderful. And well-deserved. Life is short. You only live once. And all that jazz.

On the flip-side, you started an incredible, cutting-edge company (for which I am eternally grateful) and I can't help but wonder if - as people fear for Apple, RE: Steve Jobs - your departure will mark the beginning of the demise of this fun company and great community. I sincerely hope that is not so, but it's on my mind. And so, there it is.

I wish you all the best in your personal life and future pursuits. If it's a new business you're starting down the line and it involves crowdsourcing (and ideally, cameras), count me in!

Buon viaggio.

Very sad news... it is hard for me to write something at the moment. All I can say is, we'll keep that dream that is istock, the community, in the way you lead it, with love and trust. Bruce, truly thank you for everything, really, without you I won't be where I'm today, I'll be always grateful for that. My friend, good luck, take care, I love you... and see you soon I do hope!
