To commemorate the birthday, the gang released a complete dump of every Boing Boing entry for free download. I’m hosting the torrent on my tracker, and I pulled together some statistics. (Is anyone surprised?)
Try my new Boing Boing Statistics. Most notably, use the keyword tracker to search the popularity of keywords over time, broken down by author. This is outstanding for looking at trends, or the uniquely quirky obsessions of each author.
Let me know if you have any suggestions, or have found other uses for the data dump.
January 22, 2005: By request, here’s a direct download of the 5-year archive.
