A BioE million-stone!

Yesterday, bioephemera got its one millionth visit.*

Thanks so much to everyone who reads, shares, and enjoys my posts - you're why I keep blogging, in whatever spare time I can find. There's just too much interesting stuff out there to keep it to myself when I find it, and I've met far too many fascinating and brilliant people who defy categorization by doing this. . . you know who you are.

But whatever - it's the one million milestone by the most conservative estimate, so I say let's drink to that. :)

Readers, this week I had to do something I have never done before. Specifically, I banned someone from BioE. Their comments will no longer appear here, and as the rest of you may notice when you comment, I've turned moderation on to enforce that. Unfortunately, that means everyone's comments will…
