    it's a map of a spoken languages. we probably should be in our island in the strait between spoken and programming language continents. Oct 6, 2010 at 22:25
  • What is more interesting: what size StackOverflow / Stack Exchange sites would be, either using new methodology (volume of daily social activity: questions, answers, comments, perhaps votes) or the old one (size of membership) in xkcd: Online Communities and Ethan Bloch update Oct 6, 2010 at 22:34

    @mmyers: It's pretty hard to come up with a somewhat consistent story line, produce the result, and post it; all while the question is gathering close votes by the minute :)

  • Yeah, I know. I have a tendency to tell long jokes that should have great punchlines, only I can't think of them in time. (Either that or I'll tell the first two panels of a Dilbert strip and forget the third. It's a bad problem to have.)

    @balpha: probably it was just a joke and probably you already know, but just in case you or someone else reading doesn't, as long as you started to write an answer you have infinite time to post it even if the question is closed Oct 7, 2010 at 2:12
  • The only problem with this is now I can't delete the question later. Oct 7, 2010 at 4:50
