A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2010. That’s about 4 full 747s.


In 2010, there were 44 new posts, not bad for the first year!

The busiest day of the year was November 2nd with 136 views. The most popular post that day was On machine-information metaphors.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were uncommondescent.com, whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com, evolvingthoughts.net, uncommondescentdissent.wordpress.com, and mail.live.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for heretical philosopher, uncommondescentdissent, uncommon descent dissent, camera analogy, and “the camera analogy”.

One Comment to “2010 in review”

  1. This post was automatically created by WordPress. I did have a choice on whether to post, and I could have edited before posting.

    I decided to give it a try – the experimental method at work.

    In the next few days, I will be starting a series of posts on the notion of “purpose,” with the aim of providing a natural basis for what might be called “apparently purposeful behavior.”
