On the occasion of the 100th DDIP post, I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize those whose time & effort along the way have helped shape this blog into something that is worthy of your continued patronage. I would first like to thank Doreen Gridley and Dona Stohler for their support and assistance in pursuing this idea. I would also like to thank Marty Klaper for his overall support and for being such a good personal and professional mentor. I also thank Judy Okenfuss for working with me to get this project started and for taking the initiative to get me on the right track with my substantive postings. I would also like to thank Tom Walsh, Mike Swift, and Doreen Gridley for their current support for the ongoing blog posts. I also thank Greg Duff, Brad Stohry, and Alex Forman, not only for submitting articles for posting on the blog, but also for helping me from time to time on individual patent and trademark projects I am working on. As you can see, many internal people were and are involved with this project, and I truly appreciate their assistance. I am very fortunate to work with such a good supportive group of people at Ice Miller.

Special thanks to Dennis Crouch of Patently-O blog fame for his support, both offline and online through his blog. When Dennis refers to me or the Daily Dose of IP blog, people become interested, and the interest is definitely welcomed. I wish Dennis nothing but the best.

There are also a number of other people I need to thank for their support that I may or may not have thanked previously. Several people, including Joseph Scott Miller (The Fire of Genius), Gary Odom (The Patent Prospector), Axel H. Horns (IP::JUR), John Rizvi (The Florida IP Blog), Stephan Kinsella (KinsellaLaw Web Log), James E. Hawes (IPthoughts), and Rita's thoughts for linking to, writing about, and/or referencing me or the Daily Dose of IP in their individual intellectual property law blogs. If I left anyone off of this list, I assure you it was not intentional. I sincerely appreciate the support and recognition, and I wish you all the best in your own blogging efforts.

On the technical side, I must admit that Blogger has worked quite well for me. Aside from a couple of minor delays in posting, Blogger has consistently provided excellent service, at the absolute best price (free!). I also use SiteMeter to obtain information on the frequency of hits and geographical locations of those viewing the Daily Dose of IP blog, and I would also recommend this limited free service to those who do not currently have such a feature affiliated with their own website. In addition, I would like to thank Jim Montgomery for his assistance with the logo for the blog. Jim does nice work and I recommend him for any graphic design needs you may have.

Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank those who have subscribed to the blog (to receive my daily posting via e-mail), those who have e-mailed me to provide supportive comments and suggestions, and those who read the blog from time to time. In just a few short months, readers from over 35 countries have visited the blog, much to my surprise. I plan to continue this blog indefinitely, and with your support, and spreading the word about the blog, more and more people will have the opportunity to review its content and hopefully benefit in some way from the efforts that go into making this blog a reality.

Thanks again to everyone. Please feel free to e-mail me with any comments, suggestions, and/or questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for visiting, and have a great weekend.

Mark Reichel
