As the keeper of the blog, what do you think? We talked last Friday about
having a birthday post sooner rather than later, but I also see Alex's
point. Would you please weigh in?

Subject:  Re: Birthday blog post

Thanks for writing this up, Scott! Overall it's well written and gives a lot
of great shoutouts.

A few high-level comments:
* The post uses first person a few times, which seems a bit informal for an
Official Announcement on the Official Blog. (Although it's possible I just
have weird preferences--what do others think?)
* It's looooooooong. It's a great, in-depth overview of progress in the past
year, but it might be too much for a general audience to read through.
* We had talked in the past about using the birthday timing for a more
concerted marketing push. That implies to me that we might want to
de-emphasize the one year birthday angle in this post so we can "save it"
for a bigger push. One way to do that is to keep this post comprehensive
(which is pretty inside baseball and won't be particularly interesting to
press), and play down the "OMG it's our birthday" angle just slightly in the
intro and title. Does that make sense? Is it a silly idea?
I haven't had a chance to leave specific, low-level comments.
