Just for posterity, I want to note that this site published its 1,000th post today. Considering it took about 13 months to get there, and that I basically endured a forced exile for the month of July, I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with the effort. I’ve said before and it remains true that this Web log has been the most consistent journaling and writing that I have done in many, many years…maybe ever. Certainly, these last two years of blogging at various places are the most sustained public writing that I have ever done, and that alone has literally pushed me into places that I never, ever thought I would get to. It’s been a heady, very cool ride that I sincerely hope some of my students can experience at some point. Actually, I know some are, because I read their personal sites and am continually impressed with the depth of their thinking and the quality of their writing. This is such an amazing technology, and the best part is that we’re still just kicking the tires. I’m looking forward to the next 1,000…
