Elle installed Google Analytics? for this site during her recent upgrade frenzy, and I've been amusing myself today by trying to sift useful information from the barage of data.

It's been running a month now, and there are some interesting things I've gleaned. For instance, there are more AI readers in L.A. than anywhere else in the world. Roughly 1/3 of all AI readers are on the West Coast of the USA, and of those, roughly half (so 1/6th of the total) are in L.A. The Oregon map shows some interesting data. For instance, there is an avid reader or two in Sheridan. For some reason, I find this fact somewhat disconcerting, as it is a town of some 3,000 people up in the Cascade range.

Although, when you think about it, the town AI is written in, Mill City, OR, makes Sheridan look like fuckin' Gotham. So there's that.

I'd also like to hear from the two people that regularly visit this site using SunOS. For some reason, I have it in my head that one of them lives in Sheridan. That'd be funny.

But other than that, the main thing I can glean from Google's analysis is that you all have much too much free time on your hands. Seriously. Make some music.

It's not that I don't have a life, it's that I'm really good at multitasking. Even when I'm working on music.

I have this possibly unfortunate habit of firebomb bookmarking blogs that I read, thanks to the very handy "open all in tabs" function in Firefox's bookmarks system. So my viewership numbers of this site would be skewed, since I load it pretty much any time I want to check two or more of the many blogs I scan on a regular basis.

Yup, I do the "open in Tabs' here as well (LA CA mostly).
Never ever read thought. Your data is soo skewed.

Man, I've got so little life. I seriously must read this thing like 5 times a day, and use it for a gear related (i.e. what was that good summing box) at least 10 times a week.

You think that's bad, you should see how much time I spend at thesuperficial.com

I have nothing better to do at work, and this is one of the more interesting sites to lurk.

I'm not even a professional, but it's very informative and there's no peppering of advertisement bias.
