Celebrating Three Years

Three years ago yesterday, I hit Publish on this blog for the first time. This was my very first post.

Where has the past year taken us?

We examined how too much precision kills communication. I gave you 17 ideas for your 3D printer. I bought a unicycle and delved into group isomorphism (whatever the hell that is). Still working on that unicycle, by the way – I brought it out of the garage again just a week ago, after months of neglect.

We asked whether luxury is morally wrong and delved into the Voynich Manuscript. I interviewed friend of the blog Ben Trube about his fractal book. You endured my two-sentence terrors with good grace. I waxed lyrical on Dr. Who and Avatar: The Last Airbender. For the latter, I made fan art and even a music video.

I joined a zen community, self-published a book of poems called “The Witching Hour,” and explored my relationship with Christianity in a two-part post (one, two). We briefly visited Siberia, and Iceland too; apparently I have a thing for the frozen north. And we talked about free will in The Lego Movie.

The NSA revelations broke, and I explored what it means to crusade for a cause. We rallied.

I posted photos of Ohio Caverns, my mom’s art show, old jack-o’-lanterns, and South Dakota.

I took a hiatus due to illness, but I’m back.

I reviewed all the things, wrote all the stories, and posted all the poems.

It’s been a good year. A difficult year, but a good year.

As always, thank you for reading. You make this blog worthwhile. Without you, I’d just be rambling into space.

Here’s to three more years (at least). Excelsior!

  1. Congratulations! Here’s to three more years, and more.

  2. Congrats man! Leaving this comment via a Zorin-Lite live CD which is probably going to be my replacement for XP on my old desktop after the XPocalypse. Completely unrelated to your post. I just needed to geek out to someone.

  3. Yay! and may 3 more years come . . .
