Some cool web site traffic images:
We got stuck in traffic beind this fruit delivery truck, and of course, this reminded me of one of my favorite web sites, Boing Boing ( boingboing.net/ ) I got this shot by sticking my camera out the passenger side window so I wouldn’t shoot throught the windshield and pointing in the right general direction.
Etisalat blocks web site
In the UAE, the only telecommunications provider is government-run Etisalat so your only choice for internet connection is Etisalat… or Etisalat. Etisalat runs all web traffic through a number of proxies and filter out and block certain types of content because, as you can see in the picture, it is considered "inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates."
TinyScreenfuls.com Web Traffic so far in 2005
I’ve never paid super-close attention to web stats like hits, etc. I check them once in a while, and they seem like they’re impossibly large. Could it really be that this many people are reading my blog? *boggle*
Hits to www.tinyscreenfuls.com quadrupled from about 40,000 in January 2005 to more than 160,000 in October 2005. About half of the hits are coming from my site feed. Growth looks pretty linear – I wonder if it will continue? 🙂 I’m not sure what accounts for the spike in March. (EDIT: Oh, wait. That’s when I got Scobleized 🙂
Many thanks to all of you who read TinyScreenfuls.com, subscribe to the feed, and listen to the podcast. The reason I write here is because I love to talk about this stuff. The fact that there are people out there who love to read and listen is very gratifying (and somewhat scary ;-).
