April 26, 2005


OpenAppleDumb.com has been around for over two years now. I don't actually remember the date of the first post, and it's long since been deleted, but I do know that it was somewhere in early-to-mid April of 2003, shortly after I got the job at the University.

It all started with just a couple people visiting per day, and it's grown to the giant media-conglomerate that you know today. People all around the world are drinking OpenAppleDumb cola, they're watching OAD-TV, Anchorage's football and baseball teams play in the OpenAppleDome, and I'm sure you rememeber our commercial during this year's Superbowl (the one without the monkies).

And today is likely to be the day that OpenAppleDumb has it's 10,000th visit. So if we estimate that this blog has been around for two years (365 days * 2 years = 730 days), that's an average of 13.7 visits per day. That means that there's a good group of you that have decided to make this blog part of your day, and I really appreciate that. It's certainly part of my life, so I'm glad that you've found it interesting enough to hang around.

We've been through four format changes (the bland original page, the computer screen apple, the house front apple, and now this), the birth of my daughter, the rebirth of the Naughty Frogs, my switch to being a full-time dad, and a lot of daily rambling. I've had a great time, and I hope you've laughed at least once.

Let's all break out our sippy-cups and have a toast to 10,000 more visits! (Which should happen in about one year this time, based on current visit rates, pretty exciting, eh?)

You're like NPR and a morning cup of coffee. Part of the routine.
