It was pointed out to me that yesterday’s post was our 2000th here on The Scholarly Kitchen. In a little over 7 years, that averages out to 286 per year, not a bad level of productivity considering we almost never post on weekends.

2001 Monolith
This turned up in my living room yesterday…

There’s clearly a Kubrick/Clarke metaphor to be made here, about humanity evolving to the next level and the near constant experimentation, change and evolution of scholarly publishing, but I’ll leave that to the reader. And though not anywhere near the level of genius of Kubrick, we do resemble him in that our works have certainly been the subject of interesting conspiracy theories.

Regardless, thanks go out to all our authors, present and past, and here’s to the next 2,000!
