Our blog went live on September 10, 2010, so today marks our first anniversary. We have enjoyed the conversations and appreciated being forced to keep up with the avalanche of technical and legal information that flows past trying to find good topics.
By far the most gratifying part of this experience is getting to know and become peers, confidants and friends of people of so many people. At the risk of singling some individuals out, our blog would not be what it is without the consistent interest, support and commentary of people like Chris Hill , Chris Cheatham , Matt DeVries , Jay O’Keeffe , Shari Shapiro , Scott Judy , Andrew McRoberts , and especially the Lex Blog team formed by Kevin O’Keefe . Your friendship and counsel and sharing, especially in the infancy of this effort, has been greatly appreciated.
I thought it would be interesting to share the twenty posts that got the most traffic this year, particularly as you may have missed some. Thanks for your support!
