Would it be possible for you to just list the different pots the boys have their fingers in? I have seen many listed like 1D Media, One Mode, Rollcall, etc but it'd be an invaluable reference (for me) if it was in one place. It doesn't have to be exhaustive or very descriptive, possibly just one line about it? If this is too much work, please don't worry about it. I learn so much from your blog so thank you for all that you discover, learn, and post! Much love and appreciation.

I can do that :)
