So after it was up and working, JJ and I refined the look and feel, and I started to add more content so that would have something by the time the initial announcement came around. A few years I read about an (attributed) secret to Seinfeld's producitivity:"Don't break the chain". Just keep writing, and write every day.
I made my goal of a post every day for just over a month, and created this sequences:

The Rcpp Gallery continues to grow, we now have 58 posts from 7 different authors. And it is open for business: new contributions are always welcome.
