Hello and Happy Thanksgiving from Comparative Geeks! We’ve had a pretty good year, as far as 2016’s go. I suppose that’s a low bar – 2016 has been pretty crummy all around. I feel like we’ve spent most of the year like this:
But I feel like in recent weeks we’ve reached a point more like this:
And honestly, we’re thankful for that. The end is in sight, and here’s hoping 2017 is better. Again, it would not take much.
We’re thankful for all our contributors, and all the great articles they’ve written here both before the move to the new site, and after. The most recent series to end was Natacha’s on Humans as the Latest Addition to a Multi-Species Universe. We’re gearing up for some end-of-year posts, and for some new series in the new year.
We’re thankful for our podcast listeners, and want to let you know we’re working on getting some more voices on for more topics. This is definitely going strong, keep listening! If you have any topics you’d like us to discuss, let us know! It’s been a fun addition to the site and our overall discussion of things Geek.
We’re thankful that the result of all the tension and division and partisanship and politics of this year seems to be leading into increased civic engagement. That’s a good, American, non-violent response, and a better result than many that could have happened.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, and a great rest of your 2016!
