4 years of blogging

I started this blog exactly 4 years ago, on April 12, 2008. Here are my top 10 posts from the past year:

1.  Live-blogging most of the Republican presidential primary debates: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, #14

2. Do you give to charity to help people or for other reasons?

3. Is throwing a pie in the face of an unsuspecting victim ever a good idea?

4. If Mitt Romney doesn't "know" global warming is mostly caused by humans, is he "against science"?

5. Is it effective to argue that homosexuality "isn't a choice"?

6. The fundamental difference in how liberals and conservatives think of themselves

7. Is the death penalty "racist"?

8. 2 surprising pay gaps

9. Something is starting to creep me out about advertising in general, and Apple's advertising in particular.

10. How much of a problem is it that you don't have enough time in your whole life to become "reasonably well-read"?

Hey! I missed this yesterday. See what happens when you don't update every day? Your own mother fails to check in.


And congratulations.

Lots of cool stuff on that list... and elsewhere.
