Hello, readers, fans, friends and family. Today’s our tenth anniversary.
I started Pandagon on July 26, 2002, during a break between my junior and senior years of college. It was mainly a space to take what I was putting in Atrios’ comments and spin it out into my own website.
Now, Pandagon is an actual thing, thanks in large part to the work of the other people who’ve worked on the site – Amanda, Ezra Klein, Pam Spaulding, Auguste, anyone else I’m forgetting because I’m about to turn 30 and the mind is going.
Thanks to everyone’s who’s read and is reading; thanks to everyone who’s written for Pandagon; thanks to everyone who thinks our name is synonymous with batshit crazy and continually links to us yet doesn’t disprove anything we say. You, in particular, are the reason the internet persists as a large-scale forum to inevitably lead toward Hitler references and shamefully stupid quotes that are wrapped around pictures of cats.
Time to act like a ten-year-old and demand chicken strips and waffle fries. I WANT BARBECUE SAUCE. SIX OF THEM.
