Is It a Drone? A Clone? No! It's IWSG - and it's 2 Years Old


As I asked before, is it (thinks before typing) "ISWG" or "IWSG"?

Or, does it mean "I'm Writing, Seeking Gary"?

But then again, what if it is the International Wader Study Group, an organisation of enthusiastic professionals and amateurs researching waders, also called shorebirds.

And, oh no, did we miss the chance to go to Zurich to support the 5th International Workshop on Science Gateways?

What if it's perhaps a different way of seeking an International Standard Book Number?

You know, my three-year-old said I'm part of a "Itsa Weally Swell Group" of people who participate every month... and I do weally like my friends here, so that might be it.

Well, whatever it is - and if you're a blogger, you *know* what it is - but did you know IWSG is TWO years old this Wednesday!

You're invited to participate, as always, and a little clone told me there is to be a big surprise :)

Happy Labor Day, and see y'all Wednesday :)

Congrats on Two years IWSG. Nice of you to post this Mark and your other interpretations were quite funny.

Happy Labours Day Mark. Though I joined IWSG just this year, I already feel a strong sense of attachment towards it.

The Words Crafter said...

Yay, Happy Anniversary to the IWSG!!!

Misha Gerrick said...

Nice entry. ;-)

So glad that IWSG lasted so long. Here's to the next two years.

What your son said made me laugh. When my nephew was little, he came inside to his mother and said, "I found something in the garden that starts with 'y'." After trying to guess at what could possibly be growing in the garden that starts with Y, she gave up. "Yettuce!" he said with price. Ahhh yes, Lettuce.

Looking foward to IWSG, whatever it REALLY stands for.

Your son worked it out all on his own...weally bwainy boy...
The IWSG rocks!

How about: I'm Wadin' [knee deep in] Sh**, Gary. Get me some boots!

Fun post, Mark. You're not insecure. Not at all. :P
