PostCongrats from Boris Volodarsky (Boris Volodarsky, Austria, 08/30/17 5:22 am)
Please accept my warmest congratulations on your 11th anniversary as our clever, knowledgeable and ingenious editor. It has been my great pleasure to communicate with you all those eleven years and through you with all WAISdom.
There's still a lot to be done to turn our discussion Forum into a formidable intellectual force whose opinion will be listened to and waited for in many parts of the world. I hope that will happen one day.
You have certainly become a (good) part of my daily life.
Peace, love and creative inspiration to you and all WAISers.
JE comments: I'll go for Day Two of blushing and self-congratulation, but Boris Volodarsky reminds us of the work ahead of us. Why isn't WAIS "bigger" (i.e., more influential in world opinion)? Why aren't we quoted more often as the authorities we already are? Do we want to become a bigger deal--or are there advantages to remaining lean, mean, and intimate? And not to mention, advertising-free and indebted to no one?
Please discuss. But in the meantime, bolshoe spasibo, Boris. You are one of the most intriguing persons I've ever met. I trust our paths will cross again, and soon.
