The numbers of contributors-ever on QI is now nearly 40,000. That's a small town of people all chatting away. And there have been a good many more than 1 million posts, not all particularly exciting. The most recent being "Glad to hear all went well!". But that sums up the Community nature of this virtual place. It's like a family and I think it gives a lot of smart, often young, people support and access to like-minded, curious (indeed some decidedly odd) people, which they may not find in the real terrestrial small town where they buy their newspaper.
I'll take this ten-years-on chance to say thanks. I've learned a lot from all of you. I've been too busy working in The Institute (and bloggin' of course) recently to tune in to QI/talk much nowadays. But I do still occasionally look for jokes.
