If you were to extract a list of keywords from the content TechWhirl
published this week, plus chats on the email discussion list, and comments
from the community forum it would be an odd-looking list:

- Pigs and chickens
- Koi
- Spam
- Swiss Army Knife
- Badge
- PDF on Demand
- Keyboard
- Reward
- Infinity Scrolling
- Privacy
- Mobility
- Converter
- Halloween
- Grammar
- Presumption

Is it a scouting blog? A chat room for agricultural app developers? Maybe a
new contender for Wikipedia? It’s actually a list that reflects the
diversity of our community, and our commitment to sharing knowledge about
what it takes to do this job of tech comm and content creation well. I’m
not sure if Google Analytics could make heads or tails of how these
keywords could possibly be related to each other, except they all have
TechWhirl in common.

We also achieved a new milestone of a sort, publishing our 1000th piece of
content since we took over TechWhirl in 2011. Maybe we’ll give you a
special badge if you can guess which article or post got us over that
threshold. In the meantime, enjoy…

Have a great weekend!
