It is not every day that I have an idea as bad/good as May 26, 2013. It was on that day that I took a tiny 3D printed doll of Keanu Reeves looking sad into the real world and detailed his adventures in text and photographs.
The story was sort of a commentary on the weirdness of 3D printed artifacts, sort of a commentary on memes run amuck, and mostly a bit of fun with a new toy.
After I had my first child in the late summer, I returned to Sad Keanu because I realized that his adventures read like a children's book. And as the holidays approached, I realized that I could actually make this children's book for the parents among us.
So, that's what we've done for our annual gift from The Atlantic's tech team to our readers. It's been a great year. Thanks for reading us.
