About the fireworks

Each rocket represents a post published on this blog in 2011. And because we like to share, we made the fireworks available as a jQuery plugin on Github.

Some browsers are better suited for this kind of animation. In our tests, Safari and Chrome worked best. Your overall score is not known (details).

We made beautiful, animated fireworks to celebrate your blogging! Unfortunately this browser lacks the capability. We made a slide show to fill in but we hope you will come back to this page with an HTML5 browser. In our tests, Safari or Chrome worked best.

To kick off the new year, we’d like to share with you data on Blackboard Banter Blog’s activity in 2011. You may start scrolling!
