Glad you found it interesting! I’m hoping to eventually build stats.bupipedream.com as a fun side-project to list this interesting stats with interactive graphs and charts (maybe using Google’s API). It would probably be interesting to check the author with the longest articles, who uses the most complicated language (using the Flesch reading ease test), and the average article length by month (to see if articles are really becoming shorter and using more images).

That would be awesome… We’ve recently been working on a similar project. I’ve been meaning to write a post about it; I’ll try to get to it this week.
