    Congratulations, danah! Please don’t stop feeding us new theoretical explanations and empirical observations of human behaviour in social network sites.

    Omedeto! Congratulations! Wow…it’s been such a pleasure seeing you though this process, and getting to learn so much from you! Yay!!

    Congratulations dana! I really hope to be tweeting/blogging the same thing sometime over the next 16 or so months. Do you have to have a viva? Or did I miss you blogging about that? Or is that not how it works across the proverbial pond? That was less than coherent, wasn’t it, sorry,

    Not only are you to be congratulated (and I cannot wait to read it!) … but you are to be congratulated for sharing your journey. It is nice to welcome you into this community!

    Hey danah,
    I met you in the office this morning when you got your lollipop. I see what you mean about your name: typographically speaking, it’s beautiful. All the best!

    Long-time reader but wanted to save my first post for when you actually received your PhD. Congrats danah and thanks for the great words over the past decade.

    I remember your blog post talking about starting this sometime last year…

    Just to get you caught up on things you might have missed in the past year: the Red Sox won a second World Series, they replaced the cast on “House” with cheaper actors and there’s a Democrat in the White House again.

    Congratulations and enjoy your holiday!

    Congratulations!! You’ve worked so hard for this!

    And, thanks for taking us along on the ride with you — I think we’ve all learned a lot along the way.
