Where does everyone come from?

While you are busy clicking away at the mergers, it has been straight forward to record where in the world everybody is. (This comes from your IP address).

There have been merger hunters from at least the following countries, others may be represented.

Algeria
Argentina
Australia
Austria
Bangladesh
Belgium
Brazil
Canada
Chile
China
Cocos & Keeling Islands
Costa Rica
Croatia

Singapore
Slovakia
Slovenia
South Africa
Spain

Sweden
Switzerland
Taiwan
Tajikistan
Thailand
Trinidad and Tobago

But this is not the whole story, the most active in terms of clicks (in the last month) have been:

The United States
The United Kingdom
Netherlands
Canada

The other related observation has been at what time of day you take part. This has been recorded over three weeks (ignoring the period just after the Voorwerp Press release).There are very significant “time of day” effects; these have been broken down into weekday and weekend usage profiles. There was only one hour during those three weeks when nobody clicked on an image.

    Nice, but the ‘tiff’ picture won’t show on my browser. (IE6).

    It would also be nice to have numbers.

    A Swedish reader here that could explain the Swedish IP.

  4. Kevin says :
