The registry blog is one year old today. Our first entry was posted on December 23, 2003. Back then, we announced "This site will have the latest news about what's going on at the registry and in the real estate and recording business. I hope the blog proves useful and informative." Most people would say that we have followed through on our promise. Sometimes it's tough to come up with a topic every day (when we began, it was seven days per week; now we've reduced it to five), but any time something happens that affects the registry, we write about it in the blog. By reading it, you'll be the best informed registry user around. We're working on a compilation of blog entries for the entire year so we can present it to you as a single document. Now that I think about it, we should include an index that helps locate relevant topics. I guess you'd use a full year of blog entries more like a reference book than a novel (although reading the compiled blog just before bedtime might be a reliable cure for insomnia). Next week will be a series of "year in review" entries recapping 2004 at the registry. Until then, Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it.
