10 years of Scripting News, for download

Scripting News: A decade in a download. First, congrats to Dave—having recently hit a little brick wall in posting to my blog, my respect for anyone who can pull it off for ten years knows no bounds.

But I’ll confess: the quant analyst in me is slavering at the thought of a downloadable 10-year blog archive. Think of the stats that could be run:

  • Histogram of occurrences of cooooooool per year
  • Frequency counts of word blog
  • A calendar view of the entire ten year period, that only shows the images

Not to mention link frequency stats: who’s the all time outbound link champion of Scripting News? It could be Google or the New York Times, but my bet is that #1 on that list will be surprising.
