Autonomous Mind blog is 3 yrs old today!

Autonomous Mind first hit the ‘publish’ button at 12:46pm on 7 January 2010.

This post at exactly the same time marks the 3rd anniversary of the AM blog.  When I started out I never thought I would generate much traffic, but even with my blogging hiatus and reduced output over the last year this little blog is only just short of a fairly respectable 1,000,000 visits.


It is with huge gratitude that I thank every reader and commentator who has visited this site over the last three years and shared their views, thoughts and suggestions.  And a special thank you goes to those great people who have generously linked to posts here, supported my efforts, provided advice and collaborated with me to create content, uncover information and assist me do a little something to hold officialdom to account.

Looking back to the first ever post on this blog – ‘Why bother, BBC Trust?‘ – is quite instructive.  It concerned the BBC, climate change and bias by omission as the BBC announced it was going to carry out a review to assess the accuracy and impartiality of the BBC’s coverage of science.  In that post we referenced a BBC Trust report called “From Seesaw to Wagon Wheel: Safeguarding Impartiality in the 21st Century” which famously declared:

The BBC has held a high-level seminar with some of the best scientific experts, and has come to the view that the weight of evidence no longer justifies equal space being given to the opponents of the consensus.

It took a long time from that report being published, but it was only recently that BBC claim was utterly destroyed when Maurizio Morabito discovered documentary proof that none of the attendees was a climate scientist and all but three were not scientists of any description, let alone the ‘best scientific experts’.  That development underlined the importance of blogs digging for information and publishing the truth when the media ignores it – and not taking at face value the claims of the various organs of the establishment. It’s part of the reason I continue to blog, even though I have much less time available for doing so these days.

Thanks again everyone.  I hope you will continue to read, link and comment!

    AM, I add my voice to all the congratulations. Well done and may you persevere for many years to come; or at least until victory over our oppressors is in sight.

    Many happy returns, AM. Your comment on the BBC’s ‘Little White Lie’ is apposite, but I note they have still not changed their policy or admitted fault. I suspect we might see Porcine Aviators cleared for take-off from Heathrow before they do …
