A Grand Day for Slaw

I’ve been watching the dial creep up – like a teenager wondering if they’ll be in a car when the odometer clicks over.

And Slaw’s Grand Day is upon us. A thousand posts is a respectable number, by any one’s count.

So a few thanks –

First to Simon Fodden – the other Simon – whose brain child this was, and who has stuck with us through thick and thin, and dedicated his significant technical and cultural skills to making this networked community work.

To our Slaw core, who’ve exposed their brains, their passions – and their quirks – in a stimulating dialogue that has been continually new.

To our friends at our friendly Utah hosting service Bluehost for keeping us afloatExcept when even the Utah grid was challenged.

And most of all to you, our faithful community – for sticking with us, and for pointing us in all sorts of wonderful directions.

Keep on posting.

Finally why did we call this site after this?



  1. Woo hoo! The millenium has indeed arrived: on to the next!

    I can only second Simon C.’s thanks to all Slawyers, those who have posted, those who have commented, and those, too, who (until now) have only read us.

    This is fun.

  2. Yay!!

    I’ve been watching it, too. I can see Simon C. has worked hard to reach that honour. Congratulations!!

  3. Congrats all!

    Is that the creamy variety of slaw or the vinaigrette variety?
