schestowitz> downloaded compared to a regular written text commentary?Jul 09 10:09
schestowitzIt's quite similar. But I've just noticed that PageRank for the site increased to 7 (Groklaw is 6) and we still get many hits, despite lack of new stories. Our other ranking are also doing alright, but I really need to compromise some activities to sacrifice for the site.Jul 09 10:09

schestowitz> Excellent.  Do you have a link to that?Jul 09 10:29
schestowitzIt is important to keep techrights sustainable long-term, unlike CMD sites and Groklaw. Hmmm... well, it seems like progressive sites won't even have sugar daddies, so they run at the expense of those passionate enough to run them. Our pagerank is now higher than that of #Groklaw and even #SourceWatch (excellent resource) 09 10:29

schestowitzYes, I also need to stay close enough to academia, which is where I distinguish myself from many others in my field, inc. people in the far east who can harness basic jobs (web design, coding, etc.) and in due time replace us all. The British and American economy may not be great, but in Germany it's still rather stable. One can never guess what the future (>10 years) may hold.Jul 09 10:29
