2011 In Review

Thanks to everyone who read my blog this year, and special thanks to those who took the time to comment. I appreciate the readership and the response.

The top 10 most viewed posts of 2011.

Stone Knives And Bearskins – A personal retrospective on personal computers.

Nine High IQ Societies – A look at nine societies for folks on the far right of the bell curve. This post ranked #1 in 2010.

“And Now For Something Completely Different . . .” –  A list of ten companies from science fiction, ranked by annual revenue.

Technically Funny –  Engineers have a sense of humor, too.

Eight Unusual High IQ Societies – For those of intelligence and specific abilities. Ranked #3 in 2010.

“Gonna Write A Little Letter . . . “ – How the demise of the personal letter affects songwriting.

Around the World And Beyond – A collection of random items, including what may be the most spectacular image of 2011.

The Newest Nanny – The efforts of one Oregon legislator to control the lives of citizens.

Fashion Faux Pas – Personal freedom combined with lack of sense.

“Take Me Out, To The Black . . . “ – A note on the passing of a significant milestone on the way to private space operations.

The only difference between this list and the all-time views list is the replacement of Around The World And Beyond with John Galt To The Rescue? and the dropping of “Take Me Out, To The Black . . .”

Titles 1, 3, 6, and 10 are pop cultural references. Anybody care to name the sources?

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2012.

Happy New Year!
