Okay, as promised, here is my weekly Open Thread where I celebrate you, my readers, by chatting about anything that’s on your minds. For example, is there a current event that you wish would receive more news coverage? Is there a particular feature you’d like this blog to have? Have you read a book or watched a movie you want to recommend to us? Do you have a question that you wish to ask? Did you recently do something that, as a kid, you swore you’d never do? Did you just meet the love of your life? Did you go jogging at midnight with your underwear on your head? Are you a lurker who has never commented on a blog before? If so, I am especially interested to read what you have to say. Basically, I am interested to read anything that you’d like to share. Well, mostly anything.
One update: one of my readers, Rob, asked if ScienceBlogs could incorporate an optional feature where readers can receive email when a comment thread has been updated. I mentioned this to the tech people and several other sciencebloggers jumped in, agreeing that this is a very desirable feature. I have no idea how long it will take for the tech people to incorporate this, but the message was delivered and the idea is appealing enough that it will happen at some point (hopefully soon).
