Next week, while the OTI staff vacates the OTI-dome for frolicsome offline holiday and new year’s celebrations, we’re honoring a time-honored blogging tradition and running a bunch of best-of list posts. (And some other goodies. Don’t worry, we won’t let you be bored all week.)
We think this can be more than a just cynical exercise in generating bogus pageviews; it can be a cynical exercise in generating bogus pageviews and a profound and deeply introspective effort at soul-searching and taking stock. OTI has come a long, long way since it went live on January 22, 2008, and the community of readers, commenters, podcast listeners—overthinkers of every stripe—has grown faster in 2011 than ever before.
So we’re asking you to pitch in to nominate your favorite articles of 2011 for this year’s Readers’ Choice Award by copying and pasting a link in the comments. And tell us what you’ve liked best over the past year: What topics caught your interest, what approaches caught your eye, what projects should we undertake (or abandon)? As we prepare to face the new year (and prepare to launch some big changes for OTI’s fourth birthday), we want to know what’s working.
Nominations will be open all day today and tomorrow, and next week we’ll crown the winner.
Here’s the list… What’s your favorite?
