still no analytics

D'Arcy Norman, D'Arcy Norman Dot Net, Mar 08, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

If it's any consolation to D'Arcy Norman, I don't run any analytics on my website either, just a single line of script that counts hits on posts when someone reads them (it produces the aggregate scores for the top posts page, data that is highly suspect and not especially useful. I don't even keep reliable server logs - I rotate them out of existence after a few weeks so they don't fill up my hard drive. Because I agree with Norman: "I can't let myself play egocentric mind games with numbers. I can't delude myself into believing this space is Important, or cringe popular because those things aren't real, and don't matter."
