, the weblog from Tom Coates
, exists for 5 years, and to celebrate that he has made available a full data dump of all his writings
and the links hidden within it so others can analyze/visualize/datamine it.
So far, the response
hasn't been that overwhelming, so I thougth I should spread the meme here. I'm sure that with the combined powers available in this community, we can come up with some clever ways to rip the data apart and find some hidden gems in it.
A reader of the site suggested to use Perl to make a graph of the readability score of the blog over time, but Monks who know all those Lingua modules better than I do must be able to come up with something funkier.
Let's give Tom some nice birthday present for his blog, and show Tom -and the rest of the blogosphere- what Perl can do.
