  • many mongers are on multiple lists (i am on 4) so subscriber counts aren't a good way to measure group sizes. it might be fine for smaller groups or ones which are more isolated but i am sure london.pm's size is due to many outsiders on its list.

    but this is an interesting exercise anyway, regardless of its serious statistical flaws.

    • many mongers are on multiple lists

      In the talk that accompanied the slides I estimated that up to 25% of the 8,300 mailing list subscriptions might be taken up by David Adler being subscribed to every PM mailing list :)

      Which got the desired laugh, but also made the point that this stats are pretty close to being meaningless. I'm on about a dozen PM group mailing lists.
