2010 in review

The artificial intelligence engine at WordPress (who hosts this page) sent me an email with some stats on how the site has been doing since I set it up back in June. According to the analysis, the page is “fresher than ever”, so I’m delighted. The email even had a convenient button to post the whole thing right at the bottom. And since I haven’t posted anything for a while I thought, “why not”.

No review of my online 2010 would be complete, however, without mentioning the Twittermood project I did with Alan Mislove, YY Ahn, JP Onnela, and Niels Rosenquist. That project earned us 302 713 views on YouTube (at the time of writing) and global press attention with large amounts TV, radio, print, and internet coverage (click here for full details). Recently, the visualization was mentioned first among Mashable’s best infographics of 2010, which generated a mini-surge of traffic for the YouTube video.

Anyway, the unedited message is below:

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Fresher than ever.

The busiest day of the year was July 22nd with 207 views. The most popular post that day was Worlds Colliding. Part II.
