A threshold was crossed today, one I’ve had my eye on for a long time, watching the numbers. As of today, this weblog has had more comments on it than posts. It’s a little bit of an artificial milestone, because some of those comments are from me (but none from spammers in that count.) This blog has been around just over 3 years, and for the first 9 months it was on a system that didn’t allow comments. For the next year, there were not that many comments – some but not a lot. Most of the participation has been since the podcast began.

Thanks to everyone that back feeds the feedback and keeps the conversation going. That means a lot to me, and I appreciate it.

    I wasn’t going to comment on this but it’s too tempting. Everyone should participate and feel free to dissent. It would be nice to have an Evil Genius IRC chatroom once a year. Maybe on the anniversary.

    Back to the Butler/INXS thing. We all have our idiosyncrasies. I can remember when I was mysteriously drawn to “The Many Lives of Dobie Gillis”.

    What did Thalia see in that Warren Beatty character Milton Armitage? (besides his good looks and money), and how was it that the Bob Denver character Maynard was a beatnik yet he never had any weed? We know that Denver did in real life ;).

    Much obliged to put in my two cents every now and then. I think part of the reason is that you seem a really approacheable person. It comes out through the blog and the podcast. And so I feel welcome to put my oar in and I do.

    I owe you some pictures for the Podcast Expo thing, gotta go through iPhoto and see what I dig up that’s recent. Or maybe I can send you a photo of EGC’s vicarious listeners: my coworkers that enjoy your podcast through my playing the latest episode at the office.

    i do have to say dave, that part of the fun of your blog (plus podcast) is the egc community involvement itself, fun stuff is discussed always, whether heated or amiable, and even the troll involvement is entertaining to a point 😉

    The “2 for the price of 1” comment policy is what did it. 🙂

    I’ve used that policy a bunch of times.

    And Mike is right; the community’s the thing.
