One year of oldWeather
We started our voyage one year ago (12th October 2010), and we’ve come a long way since then. According to the standard baby development milestones, we should now be able to explore new objects by poking with one finger, crawl up and down stairs, and reach out and grab things we want.
That article seems to have left out the standard ages for ‘transcribed 685,000 log pages’, ‘generated one million new historical weather observations’, and ‘built a thriving community of 10,000 historical climatologists’. But I think it’s safe to say that not many one-year-olds have achieved as much – we are remarkable indeed.
Happy birthday oldWeather, it’s been a treat to grow up with you. And in common with most people of our age, I look forward to exciting new development in the near future.
