What time is it? It’s UMW Blogs time all the time

I have to admit, I don’t understand the Semantic Web, I’m too facile—I can only think in terms of b-movies and slick new plugins. But I fully recognize my limitations, in fact I embrace them. But when I see posts like this from Patrick Murray-John, I get a very powerful sense of just how useful the scraping and collection of data on UMW Blogs can be.  Check out these charts that visualize exactly when people are blogging on UMW Blogs during the course of a day (it truly never stops!)


How cool and useful is information like this? I guess when we do updates we need to do them from 4:00 am to 6:00 am, or perhaps during the dinner time lull from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

      Actually, I didn’t. I stole them from Patrick, who has a data analysis program on his computer that is copying and pasting the data scraped from a table of the created time for every post. You may want to ask him about the specific, because this is all his goodness, I am once again just a messenger 🙂

    You have to call the 5-6am period The Witching Hour. Or at least The Zombie Hour. Yep.
