Three Years of Backreaction

A while ago, Bee wrote a post about Risky Black Holes.

This seems to be a timeless topic – it could have been written today. It was three years ago, and it started this blog.

Happy Birthday, Backreaction!



  1. Congratulations, Bee and Stefan!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let's see another 10, wherever in the world you are!

  2. And meanwhile, this blog is potty trained, sleeps through the night, and has its first teeth.

  3. happy birthday!

    I don't know if its really the rage they claim it is, but there is a local advert run during hockey games for 'mad science birthday parties!' There seems to be one in Kitchener perhaps I'll ring them up and send them over to PI to help with the celebration :)

  4. Happy birthday, and thanks for all the great posts!

    Snowboarder, I went to a birthday party last year in Vancouver which featured making "silly putty" in paper cups. Was quite fun, even if the rental mad scientist was better at the six-year-old version of the chemistry than the adult.

  5. Happy Birthday Bee/Stefan,

    I look forward reading your future

    Cheers, Paul.

  6. Hi Bee & Stefan,

    I would also like to wish this blog happy birthday!!! Also I would like to congratulate the loving parents. Now what do you suppose it will want to be when it grows up, a popular science book perhaps? :-)



  7. 3 blogging years is like 45 human years. Your blog is middle age. Happy birthday.

  8. Happy blogoversary to you! It didn't take long for you to become one of the premier physics blogs.

  9. While musing around the physics blogs, I discovered yours and day after day it provided me with an increasing satisfaction. Which is quite needed after visiting Lubos blog!!! Great job Bee, and happy blogoversary.

  10. Yes, happy 3rd birthday and congrats to Bee and Stefan. I've had more fun reading this blog than any other science-based one I can think of, and yet the interdisciplinary essays about science and society, economics etc. are excellent. Since I lived in Germany for awhile (Kaiserslautern) it is also enjoyable to hear about those issues and events. Good show.

  11. Hi Everybody:

    Thanks for the nice words. I have been somewhat blog-tired recently, I guess the more frequent readers have noticed. So I appreciate very much to hear you enjoy reading our blog. Best,


  12. Happy Birthday, and good work!


  13. More important than known hazards that do not exist are unknown hazards that cannot be imagined. First World civilization transitions from brave exploration to paralytic paranoia decorated with sybaritic parasites.

    As so many welcome Dark Ages' velvety assurances let the few shine a bright light in their stupid faces.

  14. Congrats, and keep up the great work you two!

  15. Congratulations for the Blog-Birthday! And -- again -- it was very nice to meet you both personally.

    Best wishes,
