Many of you have probably already seen this, but in case anyone else is interested in following the history of Paizo (now celebrating its tenth year), Lisa Stevens and others are producing a blog series outlining the company's story in ten monthly installments. The first, covering 2002 (and the transition from Wizards of the Coast, can be found here, while the second is here.

So far it's some pretty interesting stuff for those interested in how the business side of the hobby works, and especially why the magazine business is so tough. There's also a lot of interesting tidbits for those of us interested in D&D, like the birth of the first Adventure Path.

Two more entries have been posted:

Laying the Foundation - Year 4 (2005)

Battling Headwinds - Year 5 (2006)

The second one is where they learn that WotC is pulling Dragon and Dungeon back. Pretty interesting stuff.
