Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Today we hit the 500,000 visits mark on Chillin’Competition, so we just wanted to say THANKS!

Nicolas started this on March 2009, and I joined a few months later, in October (with a guest corner at the time). It’s been 4 years, 765 posts, 1 or 2 interesting posts, 763/4 nonsense ones, 1,050 comments, 1042 Linkedin group members, 506 WordPress subscribers, and a few hundred hours of telephone calls [during which I tried to censor persuade Nico not to publish some stuff (one I can tell you about is the proposal to do the EU competition law version of this) and he complained at my (alleged) lack of political incorrection], $ 72.08 of AdWords earnings and $ 65 spent in preserving the domain (that’s a $7 profit in 4 years, or $ 0,02 per hour spent writing here; as you see, we’re still struggling with the notion of opportunity costs…).  Below’s the wordpress table depicting our evolution.

P.S. Nico has committed to pay you all a beer when we hit 1 million…

  2. Congratulations, guys! Any fears of a dominance investigation by the Commission?

  3. congrats guys – but i would spend a word of caution on doing the EU comp LAW version of … ‘that’: your female readers may decide they also want a similar one and then many of your male readers (and authors of the blog?!) may end up being a little frustrated 😉
