Nothing lasts forever
Toward the end of his life, Steve Jobs made a point of noting the very strong bench at Apple that he believed would continue to accelerate the company ahead of its competitors by an ever wider margin long after he was gone.
As I approach bookofjoe's eighth anniversary on August 24, I wonder occasionally about its its fate should I no longer have the interest and/or energy to continue, or just drop dead.
I must admit that not only do I not have a strong bench — I don't even have a bench.
The nearly 23,000 posts in the boj archives all speak with my voice.
It becomes apparent that the Johnny-one-note tone will continue, and that I'll keep on keeping on till my immobile fingers are pried off the keyboard by Gray Cat (I'm down wit dat).

Great fingers, dude! Keep up the good work. As a Blogger myself, I really appreciate the joy, the thanklessness and the labour of love in you effort to share your universe with us. Thanks!

Wait! Was that an obscure reference to a Bruce Hornsby song? ("Sunflower cat/some dour cat/I'm down with that")?

I hope you live long enough for the Singularity to take in your essence and then carry on. In the mean time, carry on, please

Well, Joe, you could double your post-pool and set up auto posts for BOJ in the years past your personal ability to continue. It's clear to me that you could bank at least 25,000 extra posts - more if you could train Siri to assist you.

Although I hope BOJ outlast me,
