Five thousand views? HECK YES.
I know there are some blogs that get ~5,000 views per hour, while it took 7.5 months for You’d Prefer An Argonaute (YPAA), but hot damn, I don’t care. The mild success of YPAA proves RNA science is quite worthy of the blogosphere, worthy of interest and debate among scientists online, just as I originally intended.
Most of the credit should go to my fabulous contributers for the RNA Journal Club posts: (in order of contribution) Anna, Joel, David W., Anonymous 1, Michael, Robin, Noah, Graeme, Anonymous 2, Anonymous 3, Vikram, David W. (2nd time), Jenny, and Anna (2nd time). These folks rock, they make YPAA what it is.
As the foundation for starting YPAA, the MIT RNA Journal Club–its organizer Margaret, and its many attendees–should also be acknowledged. (And the sponsors keep us coming by paying for lunch!)
Thanks also to my mom for hitting refresh 4,900 times. And of course YOU.
