Peter has made 4 years of contributions to Deep Sea News! Between January 2007 and July 2009 Peter averaged 12.7 ± 5.4 posts per month. Not bad! I did not have data for the 1 and half years spent at Blogger prior to joining Seed Scienceblogs, but he ranged from 3 posts in July 2007 to 25 posts in April 2009. From January 2007, DSN’s first full month at Scienceblogs, to Peter’s farewell post, he racked in 402 posts (31.5 months). I’ve compiled my Top 25 of Peter’s posts for readers to enjoy looking back on, ordered chronologically.

  1. Thank you for posting Peter’s greatest posts, Kevin!
    So many good ones to read again.

  2. I’m late in on this, I know, but I want to echo Maria’s thanks for putting this together. It’s sort of like a bloggy festschrift!
