20,000 comments & counting

Lordy, lordy: roughly five years after its launch, this blog has racked up some 20,000 reader comments:

That’s just as I’d have it, and it says more about the Photoshop/Adobe community than it does about me. I’ve always wanted the blog to be about others’ voices as much as mine (okay, almost as much!), and reader feedback has proven invaluable. Whether it’s opining on new product ideas, puking on the app icons, exchanging product tips, or even trying to steal Photoshop, I’m always eager to hear what people are thinking & trying to achieve.
Thanks so much for your generous feedback, and here’s to the next 20,000 (!),
J.

PS–I believe the honor of being #20k goes to my pal Adolfo Rozenfeld, who was in fact remarking on approaching 20k–appropriately meta & self-referential.

    20,000 is too even steven. Just wanted to get rid of one zero!
    But, seriously, I love this blog. Keep the good links (and kooky videos) coming!

    Hey. This is my first comment – Sorry for not helping you get to 20k sooner.
    I’m not a designer, nor am I a CS-Anything expert. But I really appreciate the photography, typography and random creative posts. Yours is one of only a handful of blogs that I follow regularly.
    So thank you! And keep up the good work!

    Yeah! It takes some huevos to do what you are doing! This is a great blog!
    Congratulations and best regards!

    Congratulations! Even more amazing to me is the average of about 10 comments per entry.
    Looking forward to the next one on another world changing SIGGRAPH paper.

    And what is even more amazing — to me at least — is you appear to have read every one of the comments. (Or at least something in excess of 19,438).
    Many thanks. My morning coffee would not be the same without your blog.
