As Good, Bad, and Bogus blows out the lonesome candle on its birthday cake today, I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on what’s gone on here over the last 12 months.

But rather than rambling on about what’s happened, what I’ve done, what I haven’t done etc, I’m going to just draw up a few lists. Enjoy!

UPDATE: In a kind of slight irony, the very first post here, which was really a link to a post I wrote for the Guardian Science Blog, has been listed as a finalist for the 3QuarksDaily philosophy prize. Cross your fingers for me!

UPDATE: Actually, it was only a semi-finalist… And it didn’t win. Oh well!
