To all TSZ Members and Readers!
The end of the year and the imminent arrival of the new decade made me wonder when exactly Dr Liddle set this blog up. I see it was in (or at least prior to) August, 2011. Lizzie put up her first opening post Where does information come from? here. You can tell it’s the first because the link is to “hello_world”, the example post that comes with the WordPress package. UD addicts may like to follow this link to exchanges between Lizzie and the charming Upright Biped that may have had some part in the birth of TSZ. So TSZ is well on the way to it’s first decade – a remarkable achievement considering Lizzie has not actively participated here for some years.
Then I mused how much material (over 1,300 opening posts, over a quarter of a million comments) has been buried under the scrolling over. Recently, I was reminded by a Vincent Torley post at Uncommon Descent from 2013 that popped up randomly as a blast-from-the-past of an excellent post here by Allan Miller, Journal club – Protein Space. Big, isn’t it?. Having just re-read it, it seems a shame to me that it lies buried deep in TSZ archives. There is also a follow-up article that is equally meaty (Vincent Torley’s acknowledgement). I then wondered whether some posts and threads here merit a bit of re-exposure. We can bring them to the top of the pile as a featured post for a few days to give an opportunity for further discussion in the light, for example, of further developments.
Does anyone else have a suggestion for a post or a comment that they think deserves more attention than it received first time around?
And wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year and decade!
