As an update to last year’s post:

Toni Schneider — 1,052 Maya Desai — 826 Mom — 659 Raanan Bar-Cohen — 452 Donncha O Caoimh — 424 Barry Abrahamson — 386 Mark Riley — 222 Jane Wells — 218 Ryan Boren — 200 Andrew Ozz — 197 Matt Thomas — 193 Liz Danzico — 148 Mike Hirshland — 144 Heather Rasley — 139 Joseph Scott — 129

I’ve expanded the list to 15. A lot of the same folks at the very top, but new faces in Liz and Jane from 2.5 and 2.7 usability cycles. Also three people on the list have changed their domain in the past year, just like I did. It must have been a year for that.

Also for fun here are some yearly posting stats courtesy of Alex’s queries:

Posts Avg. Words Total Words Avg. Comments Total Comments

2002 360 139 50,190 1 390

2003 429 168 72,359 3 1,287

2004 990 54 54,257 6 6,236

2005 624 48 30,090 9 5,963

2006 313 70 22,010 11 3,503

2007 334 60 20,267 17 5,919

2008 302 50 15,206 21 6,493

As you can see I’m doing fewer posts with fewer words than ever, but getting more comments. At this rate I’ll be down to 40 words per post next year. Yay brevity.

Working on collating some travel / WordCamp stats.
