Giving thanks to my blog community

ThanksgivingAs a scientist blogger, I have a lot to be thankful for as Thanksgiving approaches so I wanted to say “Thanks.”

First, I want to thank the readers of this blog who make it a reality. If no one reads a blog, then pretty much it doesn’t exist for all intents and purposes.

Second, I want to thank the commenters on this blog.

They enrich the dialogue and often teach me and others important things. They sometimes also point out where I screwed up and as much as that’s not fun, it is important an helpful. They link to helpful resources. And a whole lot more. I want to single out in particular a few more active & helpful commenters for special thanks including the prolific Brian Sanderson, Jeanne Loring, Bob Geller, Shinsakan, Amy Price, msemporda, and Hank.

I also want to thank my friends who often act as ad hoc advisors or mentors to me including not only the many who must remain anonymous for various reasons, but also specifically Kelly Hills, Jeanne Loring, Meri Firpo, and Leigh Turner. These folks deserve a huge hat tip.

Finally, I want to give a big thank you to the guest bloggers who made this blog more diverse in its content.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Dr. Knoepfler,

    Thanks so much for the shout-out! However, really I should be thanking you. Your blog is always informative and entertaining, and I really appreciate how it helps me to stay abreast of the field after my departure from active bench research, with some deeper insights and discussion than can be obtained from only reading papers and patent applications. I especially appreciate in the interviews with those impacting the field and the coverage of conferences. Thanks again, and please keep up the great work!

  2. Paul:
    You are welcome, and thank you! Your blog has become the place to find important information about stem cells, and for the occasional well-tempered discussion.

    Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. Hi Paul

    Being in Spain, where Thanksgiving is only known through the many scenes of festive merriment in films, my family and I try to spread the special nature of the day to a new group each year. They all seem to like it, especially the link to the Native Indian culture & food.

    I wish you and yours all the very best tomorrow and Thank You for the tireless and expert leadership you show in communicating and stimulating all from your unique vantage point. You have defined the space and positively impact the field through your outreach. I hope my perspective helps in some small way in supporting yours and others good work.

    Your nod is much appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving!
