It's a new year, yet the Ovi wagon train continues on its relentless journey rolling across the great Internet continent in search of new frontiers. Yee hah! Move 'em on, head 'em up, head 'em up, move 'em out, move 'em on, head 'em out Ovihide! Indeed… 2009 was a great benchmark for the remainder of the year with some great contributions, passionate discussions and slightly skewed views.

However, January's covers were dominated by the female members of the Ovi team, especially Alexandra Pereira and Linda Lane. Alexandra Pereira notched up a highly impressive five covers that included two parts of her three-part feature on slavery, a piece commenting on the dynamic of the Ovi team, nanotechnology and the Amazon. Linda Lane's quartet included celebrating Alaska's 50th birthday, office space, the 2008 Intranet Design Awards and a brilliantly-titled piece "Universal Responsibility in a Matrixed Economic World".

Other cover stories written by our female members were from Leah Sellers for her "Liberty Is, As Liberty Does" and Edna Nelson's duo ("From the Land of Delight" and "Mike Tyson: Shades of grey". The ladies may have led the field but the male members of the team were, by no means, absent. Kourosh Ziabari received a cover for each of his interview last month; the first with travel writer Jill Worrall and the second with distinguished children's author Hans Wilhelm.

Emanuel L. Paparella concluded his art series with "When is Art? Art as Symbolical and as Exemplification", Rene Wadlow commemorated the 200th birthday of anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Binoy Kampmark wrote an obituary for John Updike, Akli Hadid discussed Hyon Gak Sunim's teachings, Jack Wellman covered the inauguration of President Barack Obama, while Saberi Roy and Gush Shalom both commented upon the events in Gaza.

Asa Butcher gave us a preview of the events in 2009, discussed the issue of swearing in Ovi articles and comments and reviewed Frank Darabont's The Mist, which is still disturbing him. Thanos Kalamidas finally revealed that The Financial Crisis would be Ovi's controversial Event of 2008, write why the Czech presidency is doomed to fail, analysed the prospect of Guantanamo inmates coming to Finland and whether Oprah Winfrey should be on the Senate.

A highly eclectic month as usual and a month that has set high standards for the remaining eleven months. Thank you to each of you, whether you contributed articles, cartoons, poetry or even comments, and we hope you will continue to travel across this great continent with us… Move 'em on, head 'em up, head 'em up, move 'em out, move 'em on, head 'em out Ovihide!
