2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 78,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    Dear Peter,
    many thanks for taking the time to write the blog! Lots of interesting and entertaining things, from research, teaching and reflections on the academic profession (and its administrative framework), and many others.

    Interesting statistics on this report, just two observations.
    a) “Most visitors came from The United Kingdom. The United States & Germany were not far behind.” The UK 18316, US 17386, Germany 3103.
    Well, from the last figure I suppose the report was completed by a programme with automatic phrases, not realizing that 3103 is far behind 18316. No artificial intelligence yet.
    b) China is counted 5 times. If this figure is correct, it is a sign of the great internet wall. (There was some discussion on this topic on other maths blogs).

    • Given the limitations of artificial intelligence, I was most pleased with the fact that four of the five most-visited posts were from 2010 or 2011, and also by the fact that the monkeys with typewriters noticed this and remarked on it.
