Analysis

So looking at those numbers, and we've quite a few scoring well from 2009 and a bit of shuffling around. But the top posts remains the same.

Chart of the number of entries per year

Looking at the posts per year, clearly I wrote little of any value in 2002, 2004 and 2006! Some would say I don't write anything of any value all the time but the least said about that, the better.

Number of entries per year

If we look year on year, we see some interesting changes. That post about Ocado from 2002 is gone, and 2003 and 2004 have both slipped. Interestingly posts from 2005 have, however, gone up. Very interesting. It shows that whilst the long tail may favour more recent content, if you've got the right stuff it'll keep on getting the views, even if it is five years old.
