15th Anniversary: A Look Back at How We Looked Back
Oh, 15th-anniversary page, how we'll miss you. For 12 issues, we've used this space for overtly self-referential sesquidecimalizing. As the year comes to an end, we thought we'd take a look back at the way we looked back. Herewith, our favorite items.
1 On the first anniversary page, we ran a collection of all our covers that featured guys with beards—14 furry-faced geniuses. Weirdly, 18 of them were George Lucas.

2 In September, we compared the number of issues that mention Bill Gates (150) to the number of issues that mention Steve Jobs (110). Apple's lawyers have demanded we pick up the pace.

3 July's edition listed things we pronounced dead prematurely (like, oh, Web browsers). Is this anniversary shtick really over?

4 In March, we charted the number of covers that used neon ink. We love graphs. In fact, on the left is a little graph of how much we love graphs.

5 Two issues ago we created an "evil meter" to help Google navigate today's murky moral waters. They sued us.* Jerks.

*Not really.
