woo hoo!!! Thanks a million Chris. Wow, I can’t believe it’s a year already…though in some ways, it feels like we’ve all been doing this forever.

Well, someone else has to say this; huge, warm and messy thanks and good wishes to all the CT bloggers and our readers and commenters.

Happy first birthday CT – here’s when we stop being a cute little baby and head into the terrible twos.

Happy Birthday CT.

How about each of your bloggers make some predictions about how the world may change over the next 12 months. Then on the second birthday you can see who was closer to the truth.

-One of the predictions should be the outcome of the US presidential election.
-Another one should be about the state of the internet and/or blogosphere in 12 months time.
-state of Iraq and Middle East?
-rising stars?

George Bush will win the elections.

The internet and blog space will become restricted all over the world because governments will use the term “terrorism” to censor and jail anyone who opposes their views.

Iraq will plunge into chaos. Saddam Hussain will be executed. The US will withdraw from Iraq claiming the “job was done” and that the Iraqi people have taken over.

Afghanistan will be a failed country forever. Elections shall not take place in the next 12 months. It will become a narco state as predicted by the IMF.

Reform will not take place as rapidly as one would want in the Arab world.

Happy birthday and congratulations! And doubly so in the dative.

(What is crooked timber in Latin, anyway. Silva – erm – infelix. Unhappy forest, that’s as close as I can get without getting out the dictionary.)

Happy Blogiversary!

I’m shocked to learn that my humble blog is one week older than you guys’. You just seem to have always been an integral part of the blog landscape.

One year old?!? You’ve posted enough great content for three. (Or more.)

Congrats and thanks!
