    1. Good point, though maybe it’s got a bigger chunk of the “active” pie? I know my old Blogger site probably got caught in Mack’s stats (as did a lot of older, unused blogs). 

      I missed out on tickets to WordCamp, so can’t wait to see more of the presentations make their way online.

      1. I’ll look into it further. Keep in mind also that this data set is based primarily on visiting links from Twitter profiles and discovering feeds from there. So maybe Tumblr users aren’t as likely to have a Twitter account with a location set to Edmonton?
