Exactly two years ago on November 10th, 2011 I launched The Stack (announcement here).
In theory, that should be 51⁄52 posts, but again I missed a few:
- Week 49⁄2012 (weekend trip to Nuremberg)
- Week 06/2013 (being sick)
- Week 21⁄2013
- Week 30⁄2013
- Week 32⁄2013
- Week 35⁄2013
- Week 37⁄2013
7 missing (5 less than the year before), that leaves 44 posts - I could actually compete as an Iron Blogger ;) I have to work on writing down the reasons more diligently, though. Supposedly lack of time/planning/feeling like it - if you need one.
OK, so much for copy/pasting last year’s post - original content ahead.
What I still haven’t accomplished in this year is providing a page of all links, sorted by tag. I did write a script to have some insight into the number of tags and their distribution. I even corrected some of them, when they were close, but not identical (the old tagging problem…)
Here are the Top 10 categories:
- 48x Clojure
- 37x Python
- 28x VIM
- 24x Security
- 22x Go
- 21x Game Development
- 20x PHP
- 18x Web Development
- 15x Fonts
- 14x Algorithms
The only feedback I’ve gotten this year falls into three categories:
- “I like it, please continue.”
- Sharing it on Twitter/Facebook, what I read as “I tentatively like it.”
- “Make it an email newsletter!11”
Thanks for #1 and #2 to the handful of readers :)
Yeah, thinking about #3, if I find a way to accomplish it without a lot of hassle, as I think I’ll have less than 5 subscribers (the vocal minority).
If you got anything to add, feel free to contact me wherever you can get hold of me, that shouldn’t be too hard.
I do have one wish for this project, I’d love to have more academic papers in it - obviously related to Computer Science, as that’s all where I feel capable enough to understand them, maybe apart from very light mathematics - so if you find some, send me links. Of course other non-CS subjects might interest me as well. You can also send any sources where you find the papers you are reading.
