    So '08 was interesting (in the old Chinese curse kind of way). But of the positives, I "discovered" some great new sites like PHD. I really enjoy the span of the topics here, and the connection to other great sites and blogs that are connected.
    Great job Chandoo - looking forward to lots more in '09.

    @Meher: thanks and I wish you a very happy new year...

    @AlexJ, thank you so much. I am very happy you liked this site. 🙂 Let us hope 2009 will continue to be great for PHD and its readers.

    @JP: Dang, I cant believe I have done that. He already gets a ton of link juice from me. May be I should invoice him for this. 😀 Cleaned the link btw...
