The Automata Blog reaches 2000 posts (not counting this one)!

Happy 2,000th Post!

Yesterday's post was officially the 2,000th post ever published to The Automata Blog! That's over 6 years worth of (almost) daily posts about automata, books, videos, plans, toys, exhibits, tools, and artists. Here are some ways you can explore the posts on this blog:

Automata Blog archives

Use the Archives

The archives are located midway down the page in the site sidebar on the right side of the page. This is a chronological list (newest to oldest) by month. Each link will open all the posts for the selected month. Be patient; the page is loading 20 to 30 posts at once. This is a great way to stumble upon interesting random things.

Automata Blog labels

Use the Labels

One or more labels are associated with each post. These are the links found just below the gray horizontal line at the very bottom of each post. Usually they are just a word or two. They are assigned when the post is written. They are a good way to search for items that have some quality in common. It's a loose form of cross-referencing. Labels are really good for finding all posts related to a specific person.

Automata Blog Search

Use the Search

The search box is located in the upper section of the site sidebar on the right. The search is powered by Google, but will only search within the posts on The Automata Blog. Just enter a term and hit the gray button that says "Search". You will be directed to a new page that contains all of the search results. This is a good way to find very specific things.

I hope you will take some time to explore the blog. The posts are typically short, so you can see a lot of new things in a short time. I appreciate your visits and your support. Have fun!

That's mighty impressive, Dug! I guess that also means I've now read and enjoyed 2001 posts ;)
