Yesterday, this almost brand spanking new blog drew nearly 5,000 page views, thanks in large part to a link from slashdot.org to a data mining in the public interest post. So thanks, slashdot folks; you continue to curate a fascinating site for a huge audience. Also, thanks to Jim Romenesko, the best journalistic blogger in the country, who linked to the Huffington Post Union Bloggers item today. Then again, thanks to the WordPress operation, which put this humble blog on its fastest-growing and best-post lists recently, also helping to spin the digital turnstyles. But mostly, thanks to all of you gentle readers, who accelerate those turnstyles every time you click over here, or tell a friend he or she might want to.
