By my rough calculation going back a couple of months, Biostars is adding new users at a rate of 1000 per three weeks. That means some time in early November a user with a number 100,000 will be added to the system. Will the unsuspecting Biostars member be somehow acknowledged, Oprah-style or otherwise?
I will use this opportunity to thank Istvan Albert and all the foundational members, and especially those who still stick around and perform an often thankless job of sorting through all the posts and answering questions. You are a testament to the power of human ingenuity and altruism.
