The overall Uni Watch project began in 1999 with a monthly column in The Village Voice. The column then moved to Slate in 2003 and to ESPN in 2004. In 2006, I began supplementing the column with a daily blog — the same blog you are reading right now. The very first post on the blog was published on May 17, 2006 — 17 years ago today.
During those 17 years, an amazing comm-uni-ty has developed around this site. To all the readers, commenters, emailers, Twitter-ers, contributors, supporters, subscribers, and more, please accept my thanks for helping to make this site the amazing place that it is. Our latest
anniversary uni-versary is as much yours as it is mine. Cheers!
