Among these the change in the PerlTV is basically random. It has a lot of visitors when I post new entries which apparently happend in November 2013 and has very few visitors when I don't actively promote it.

LinkedIN - why is it useful to me?

LinkedIN has been around for quite some time, and I have been recommending it from quite the beginning. I have told why I use it to many people personally, but apparently never wrote it down.

When I recommend it in my training classes there are still many people who don't use it and who don't understand why would they need it. Then others come to my aid and "explain": "LinkedIN is the Facebook for job finding". At first I found this description trying to diminish the value of LinkedIN, but in the end it is a reasonable short description.

Business Models for Open Source Content

There are lot of blogs out there explaining how to make money with your blog or talking about content marketing, but now that I am trying to turn the Perl Maven site and some of my other on-line assets into a reasonable and sustainable revenue source, I found it important to look at a few actual sites and try to analyze how do they make money.

The relative popularity of programming languages in 2014

I am mostly interested in the Dynamic and Open Source languages so there is no Java and C# and Objective-C in this comparison. There are two tools I've used. Google Trends and Alexa.

Last year I had a similar report.

The Popularity of Dart sites in 2014

In January 2014 I've published an article about the popularity of Perl in 2013. This year I've created several pages for a number of dynamic programming languages. I am adding one for Dart as well, even though it seems that after all it has not managed to get tracktion.
