Some statistics Jimbo wish he had...

Jakob Voss-2
Hi,

There is an interesting discussion on wikitech-l about statistics. Tim
has already generated some data - I collected the graphs at

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Days_since_first_edit

and wrote something about it in my blog at

http://wm.sieheauch.de/?p=44

Because there still seem to be people that are not aware of the steep
distribution of activity per contributor: It's confirms [[Lotka's Law]]
- at least for the majority of contributors - a power law in the form
"contributors * edits^1.5 = constant" (see page 56f. in my masters
thesis [1]).

Greetings,
Jakob
