Year One in Review

366 days, 616 posts and 15,144 spam comments later, I am happy and proud to announce that Lone Gunman is now one year old (founded on February 29th 2008, I suppose it’s not even that, is it?).

LG has evolved into something completely different to what I had first envisaged and the whole experience of writing here for the past year has been fantastic: one of the most rewarding online experiences of my life and something I hope to continue doing far into the future.

After learning more about the topics I love because of this site, I have wanted to review the past year’s posts. With that said I present: The Best Stuff I’ve Read on the Internet in the Last 366 Days, or, more succinctly, Year One in Review.

Books Reading is always a pleasure and during the past 12 months I’ve done a lot of it. These posts influenced my reading habits (and Amazon wish list) tremendously:

Intelligence Research into intelligence and its correlates was plentiful, these articles catching my eye specifically:

Writing and Speaking Two things I strive to improve.

Most Popular Post: LHC First Beam, a collection of links from the morning of the LHC’s first beam.
