We've been so busy with the new site that Neatorama's seventh anniversary just slipped right past me! Alex is not one to celebrate such things, so I feel the need to point out that Neatorama was born on August 9th, 2005, with this innocuous little post:
It was two years before that post got its first comment. At the time, Neatorama was Alex's hobby, and he made a commitment to post five "neat" items a day, which eventually paid off. Now the site has over 48,000 published posts, a half-dozen authors, sub-blogs and social networking adjuncts, and a shop to support all the rest. And now we have our own blogging platform! It's been a great seven years.
