GJOpen participation rate

From 12 noon to 1:30 EST on 12 November 2015, 8 forecasts from 11,000 forecasters, or about 1 every 12 minutes.

I’m not sure how many tweets/employee/minute Twitter has, but.  No wait, actually I do.  Twitter has 645,750,000 tweets/day.  It has 3900 employees, plus or minus 8%.  So it has 115 tweets/minute/employee.

Let’s say GJ, Inc. has 10 employees.  Based on lunchtime numbers, let’s say it has 192 forecasts per day.  So it has 0.01 forecasts/minute/employee.  For a site with no advertising revenue and no user subscription fees.

It’s Internet economics.  Thank the Many-Faced God for free stuff!
