This is my 2000th blog post. My 1000th post was over four years ago. Interesting things have happened since then:
Apart from specific posts, there are larger themes. I've written occasionally about disability (most recently, Obama's special joke), and have been touched by the people who contact me because of it. My blog is mostly about software and things of interest to software types, which maybe makes it more special that I can sometimes reach the sub-culture of software types living with a disabled child. It isn't something we engineers feel comfortable discussing, but it's an important aspect of our lives, so it's good to give it some air time now and then.
More times than I can recall, I've written blog posts to explain what I know about a topic, knowing that I will know even more after reading the comments posted here. This is incredibly valuable to me, both because of the knowledge gained, and as a reinforcement of community.
The volume of posts here has waxed and waned with the availability of time, and my interests during that time, but I've always valued the connections I make via this site. Thanks everyone, for helping to make it what it is.
