Our Upcoming Anniversary

More

Very soon it will be my ten year anniversary on the blog.  I've been pondering how to commemorate it.  When my former colleague, Andrew Sullivan, hit this milestone, he asked other bloggers to write something about him.  That doesn't feel quite right to me.  But then it occurred to me that one of my favorite things about the blog is the community of commenters and readers, many of whom have now been together almost as long as the blog.  Every time I read through the comments on a post in which Mouse is explaining power engineering, Rob Lyman is patiently explaining once again the finer points of patent law, Dave Walser is educating us on how high-end financial planning works . . . aw, guys, I can't go on, I'm getting all misty.


Anyway, I thought it would be nice if you guys suggested what I should run for the tenth anniversary.  Nominate favorite posts, favorite comments (from either here or the old blog), or write a short note about either the blog or the reader community. You can do it in the comments to this post, or email me.  I'll put them up next week, when the blog officially turns ten years old.

Oh, and, y'know, thanks for sticking around.  It wouldn't have been the same without you.
