Mid-Year Stats

Here we are mid-year. Just tallied up some numbers:

  • I have been to 47 different communities so far this year (some more than once) and other OrgCode team members have been to a dozen more.
  • I have logged more than 100,000 air miles so far this year. That is the equivalent of going around the globe about four times.
  • About 850 people Like the OrgCode FaceBook page. (facebook.com/orgcode)
  • About 1,100 people follow me on Twitter. (@orgcode)
  • More than 105,000 viewers have come to the blog. (wow)
  • OrgCode went from two owners to one (me) earlier this year.
  • “SPDAT” and “OrgCode” are the two most popular terms that lead people to our website through search engines.
  • 110% is what we give it every time we make a presentation, speech or training session. Okay, not quite accurate. Just 100%. I was trying to sound like a jock there with the sports cliché.
  • 1 is the average number of nights I spend at home each week.
  • Lives impacted through our work? Not sure. We hope a few.


Here’s to the second half of the year and the pursuit of being awesome.
