A Dubious Milestone for The Lean Thinker

It is summed up in this statement on my wordpress dashboard:
Akismet has caught 10,020 spam for you since you first installed it.

This contrasts with the 167 comments (including mine) that have been left by actual, thinking people.
If I were running metrics, I would look at the ratio of 167/10,020 and see 0.0166, or a pretty much exact 60:1 ratio of bots over people. Since I can’t do anything about the bots, it is up to everyone else to help out and leave more comments! 😉

I am working on some stuff from the new book from Lean Enterprise Institute, “Managing to Learn” so stay tuned.

  1. Keep up the great blog posts.

    Imagine what it would be like without Akismet. Basically you couldn’t have comments in any effective manner without something like it with all the spamming that goes on.
