And Windows remain to be the dominant OS ...

Somebody read this blog once even from Greenland :-)

And here are the top 25 blog entries ...

The decline in blogs traffic is most likely because of the increase in micro-blogging traffic as shown by twitter stats:

Do you know of any tools that allow to measure tweets/followers over a period of dates ? Google Analytics for Twitter would be nice :-)

Happy New Year 2009!

Wishing everybody a very happy and prosperous 2009!

With 275 total blog entries published during 2008 on this blog, 2008 was the most blogging-healthy year. Thanks to all the readers of this blog for a continually increased readership.

Here are some statistics for this blog for the year 2008 (2007 stats here) generated by Google Analytics:



2007 reported 183,031 visits and that shows upto 86% growth in page visits.




The average index is constantly over 2000 (again better than 2007). But there is a definite mismatch between numbers reported blogs.sun.com (powered by Roller) and Google Analytics. Unless the definition of "page views" is different, the numbers reported on this blog are constantly in the figure of 6-8K/day and Analytics report only in the vicinity of 2K.

Here is a geographic distribution of visitors:



And same data using ClustrMaps (from Jun 20, 2008 only):



Jun 2007 - Jun 2008 clustrmap is archived here.

Here is the tag cloud (including number of blog entries on each tag):




And finally here are the top-25 accessed blog entries:





Enjoy the new year eve celebrations all around the world:

Happy New Year 2008!

2007 is history. Even in 2008 a day is gone, and 2 days in some parts of the world. But better late than never, so this blog wishes everybody in the blogosphere a very happy new year!

Here are some of the statistics for this blog for the year 2007:

Site Usage

 

Page Views

There is a high likelihood of mismatch between the way Roller instance of blogs.sun.com and Google Analytics calculate pageviews (or may be the definition of "pageviews" is different). This blog typically averages from 4-6k hits/day for past 6 months as reported on the side bar of blogs.sun.com. That would calculate to 1.27 million pageviews (5k hits/day ~ 6 months + 2k hits/day ~ 6 months) but Google Analytics report approx 1/4th of that number.

Top-25 sites

The statistics so far are generated using Google Analytics.

Geo Map of Visitors (still Miles to Go ... :)

And a brief moment of excitement was when this blog showed up at the top rank on blogs.sun.com :)

Thanks to all the readers of this blog for a continually increased readership. Please feel free to suggest topics that you'd like to hear about.

Goodbye 2006, Welcome 2007

Last day of 2006 and a lot got accomplished, either directly or indirectly, during the year:

On a personal front ...

This is by no means an exhaustive list of accomplishments either by Sun Microsystems or any other group within Sun. This is only an attempt to capture how and where I spent my time last year. There are still miles to go and a lot to be done. Today is the last day of 2006 and I'm ready for 2007.

Welcome 2007 and a very happy new year!!!
