IAALD blog reaches 1000 postings

We started this IAALD blog in June 2005 - just after the IAALD World Congress in Kentucky. The aim was to report on developments worldwide concerning agricultural information, knowledge, ICTs, libraries, extension, and communication.

Almost 5 years later, we published blog posting number 1000 - CIAT dives into social media and blogging.

In April 2008 we posted some information on the blog and its metrics. How does it now look?
