Here are the five most popular posts so far this year.
- Self-reproducing cellular automata
- Simple trig approximations
- How to mentally calculate logs
- Trig functions across programming languages
- Gell-Mann amnesia
The posts above had the most page views. But just counting page views doesn’t measure what regular readers necessarily most enjoy reading. It’s heavily influenced by what gets shared on Hacker News and elsewhere, and so naturally favors the most accessible posts.
It’s harder to say which posts have gotten the most feedback because this isn’t as quantifiable and I’m drawing on memory. But I do remember getting a lot of feedback regarding my post More Stability, Less Stress about my experience consulting. I also got a lot of feedback regarding making interesting images using a strange coordinate system.
