SBM 1000th Post

I have the pleasure of announcing that this is the 1000th post of Science-Based Medicine. The first post introducing the blog was on January 1st 2008 – almost three years ago. We have published steadily since then, and this post marks number 1000.

I would like to take this time to thank the many regular contributors and editors who have added to the success of SBM, as well as the regular readers and commenters. I would especially like to thank David Gorski, the managing editor, who has done much of the day-to-day management of SBM and is largely responsible for its growth.

We have plans to continue to build SBM into a better and better resource for science in medicine. We are just getting started, so stay tuned.

    Most of the credit goes to Steven Novella. It was his vision that created the SBM blog. I would never have gotten involved in blogging were it not for his invitation to join him, Kimball, David, and Wally as one of the original 5 founding bloggers. It has been a rewarding and educational 3 years, and I’m delighted to see how the blog has grown and developed. Increasingly, when people ask me questions, I can answer by giving them a link to an SBM blog post: it’s become a valuable resource. And now when I read about some pseudoscientific nonsense that makes me angry, I have a place to vent my frustrations, so it’s good psychotherapy and helps keep my blood pressure down. :-)

    So THANK YOU, Steven!

    Congrats. As a non-doc, non-scientist — jeez, I’m a musician — I find your frank discussions and analysis fascinating. Invaluable.

    It’s actually kind of too bad that the 1,000th post on Science-Based Medicine is an announcement of same (a meta-post, if you will), rather than one of its usual, insightful analyses of the intersection of science, medicine, and wider society which just happens to mention (in the opening or closing paragraphs) that it’s the 1,000th post.

    All the same, congratulations to SBM for three good years, and here’s looking forward to more to come.

    I was thinking the same myself but I kept it to myself so as not to spoil the party.

    A post a day keeps the sCAMmers away.

    Yay! I love SBM and have often given links from it to coworkers on various topics. You have every right to boast.

    (aka Dr Tim from the SGU Vancouver Q&A…how was Oz)

    Congrats on 1000 Steve and crew!!!

    For me it is one of the first places I turn to when I see the latest “New study shows works”….and usually SBM has already debunked it with references. Thanks guys.

    I always refer people to your archives on things like acupuncture, homeopathy and vaccine woo. You have become the “go to” blog for all thing AltMed.
