I think tye made some changes to site policy with respect to robots a few weeks after Are monks hibernating?. Would it be possible to compare the last three months, say, with the same period last year and previous years?

Update: Here is that information, number of top nodes for each month May-Sep, obtained from jcwren's PTAV (as referenced by grinder in Re: Are monks hibernating?), followed by the same data normalized to the month in 2002:

I am sure to have made some mistakes, but the general idea should stay in the same ballpark:

Perlmonks top nodes frequency is only one indicator of interest in Perl. Other indicators include job postings and tiobe. Cheers.
