At some point I’ll write a piece about my favourite posts from 2010…

What I love about the latter list is how many old posts are in there. Some just keep logging hits year after year. The Fatness Index has links all over the internet to it so there is never a day where it doesn’t get at least a few hits. Also think it is hilarious that the R2D2 post is always so strong since it really just links to a great post on another blog – Google just really likes putting it up high on those searches.

What I really like though is the mix: there are pieces on GCPEDIA, open data, the media, Firefox and open source, and politics. A great mix.
