    Musing about the average # of lines per day makes me think of the NoWriMo. NoWriMo, standing for November Writing Month, is an world-wide event where writers get together and pledge to write 50,000 words in one month (guess which one?). There's no condition put on the quality of the work, mind you; the goal is just to provide a motivation to unclog the ol' production pipe.

    In addition of the NoWriMo, there's the NoEdMo, which is for editing. Which makes me wonder if, next November, I shouldn't jump into the bandwagon and create a NoCodMo of some sort... A giant, month-long hack-a-thon. It has its appeal, in a nightmarish kind of way. :-)
    • Actually I think that would be brilliant. Goal produce one functional non-trivial application in a month. Not a bloody framework, nor a quiet little module that someone might find useful(1), but a god-as-my-witness-user-interface-driven application. Choice of GUI is left to you, HTML, GTK, TK, Wx, Flash, who cares ... but build a full application in 30 days.

      I would probably sign on and do something like that.

      1) Not that you can't create these too in the process of building The App, but I'm finding that you'

        My. Thank you. :-)

        Yup, that could be a good goal. Actually, finding a goal (or set of goals)
        that will attract and make sense for a large amount of people will
        be the hard part. Building an application is already a good metric,
        although a mite fuzzy. Lines of code, as commited to a repository, might
        be another, but then we'll have to find a good target to reach -- which
        will doubtlessly wildly vary i
