Well, a year ago today, I registered codehaus.org. Kurt Schrader announced it publically about a week later, but the registrar considers today to be the founding day for the haus.

Since then, we've had the first irregular Haus Party, picked up a corporate sponsor or two, birthed quite a few new projects (some which admittedly should probably die), and overall wildly exceeded any expectations I had when I spent the $35 on the domain.
Without the amazing hausmates, the Codehaus would've been nothing than rebranded Werken Company projects. Thankfully, Werken things make up a much smaller percentage of the goings-on of the haus. So, if you care to celebrate, raise a stein of brew and cheer in another year.
