Massive achievement – well done to all for making such a readable blog.
I mean readable and clever too of course.
Thanks for reading and commenting, Helen!
John, all congratulations — Big Other is your effort, first & foremost. As for me, I’m proud to have played a small part, & I hope to have a post about that soon.
Thanks, John! It feels good to have more confirmation that what we’re doing here is meaningful. Thanks for all of your contributions and for your boosting!
I wouldn’t trust Robert Barry, He was a notorious liar.
Originally, I had a note in this post essentially asking the reader not to take it for granted that there were a million dots in the image, and then I noticed that the image caption for the image claimed that it, the image, was a merely a “detail,” which, of course, isn’t necessarily true either, and so, I ended up removing the disclaimer.
In any case, the post was meant to celebrate Big Other, its contributors and its readers, not fall into a veracity-of-the-image wormhole. So, thank you, Adam for your posts and comments!
It probably is 1,000,000 dots. I was just being snarky earlier. Robert Barry is a stand-up guy. Even if he does tend to be overfond of inert gases.
I just finished counting and it is one million dots.
I’m so relieved. Thanks, Adam!
Someone should double-check, though.
And the next big landmark? A million contributors? A million contributions?
This is quite an amazing achievement. Well done John.
Yes! And a million comments, too!
Thanks so much for climbing aboard the Othership, Paul! So great to have your voice here.
Paul, you’re not allowed to quit until you’ve written one million words.
I suspect you’ll get there long before I do, Adam.
But who said I was going to quit? I’m in hiatus at the moment because other things have been getting in the way, but I intend to go on blogging at Big Other for as long as you’ll have me.
Yes! Congratulations John and all the great contributors here. It’s a site to be proud of and I don’t just say that because my words occasionally turn up here.
Thank you, Amber! I love having your fine words about fine, and otherwise, words here Looking forward to reading more words from and about you.
