It was a pretty big week for The Road Not Taken as we had several contenders for the most popular post this week. Again, this does not measure the most read post that was new over the past seven days but rather the most read out of any of the posts. Generally speaking it does favor the newer items but when you have a look at the list below, you’ll note that half of the most read posts were written well before this week:
For the record, from this week going forward I have decided to expand the list from five items to the 10 most popular. To my fellow American readers, enjoy the holiday (Independence Day) weekend!
I’m not all that surprised that the laser post was so popular this week but some of the other items on this week’s leader board were a bit surprising. Humor seems to have taken a back seat to some of the more cerebral pursuits.
Here are this week’s top posts in order of popularity:
Obviously this week there was a lot of interest in what’s new and hot in the world of consumer electronics, while topics like humor and social media took a backseat. What I can’t believe is that the post from Auto-Tune the News didn’t rank this week. I’ll bet a $2 bill that is in the top three for next week.
Here are the top five most popular posts from the week ending 12-Jun:
- How the 1939 World’s Fair changed the world
- Facebook can be so strange at times
- In 10 years will we care?
- I’m surprised it took this long
- China iPad Knockoff: iPed
It always amazes me how the popularity of some posts continues to linger. I posted the third item on the list in late April and people continue to read it. Enjoy.
