1 year Blogiversary of Pimm – worst of, best of

bestworstofPimm launched 1 year ago, and now it’s time to say a big “Thank you” to you, readers. In order to avoid the typical self-evangelism of bloggers and in the spirit of radical transparency I compiled a worst of Pimm and a best of Pimm, the latter is a list of my favourite 2 posts (sometimes 3) month by month.

Worst post: Geldof in a stem cell centre and declining fertility

Worst managed feature: linkroll (just look at right)

Worst design: About page

Worst month of Pimm: June, 2006 = no posts

Worst quality illustration: Pimm logo, first version: when bits meet molecules

Most popular worst post: Rumors on Amatokin: a skin stem cell wrinkle cream?

Favourite posts month by month not in term of statistics but in terms of ideas:

May, 2006: Stem cells and regenerative medicine (very short introduction) and Why do we have the right to partially immortalize ourselves, if it is possible?

  1. 1 year! I’m amazed how many science bloggers have started blogging within the last 12 months!

    Happy anniversary 😉

  2. Attila,

    Congratulations! Now you if you can manage both the blog and the marriage……

    On a related topic, I would be interested to heard what people are doing for Electronic Notebooks. I admit that I tried a few options electronically, but have fallen back to the old black book. My hand writing is illegible and you can’t attach figures, data, etc without a staple or scotch tape.

    I’d like to know if anyone has a viable solution, which does lead into your Lab Webpage mentality. Just asking,


  3. Thanks everybody. Lizfrog: you hit the nail on the head, I am phantasizing about good apps for life scientists too, post is coming on that…(I also had serious handwriting problems, in the elementary school I was always asked to help my teachers to decode my writings.)
