My old friend Tristan did a really comprehensivebut flawedjob comparing the per word rate of bloggers and magazine writers. Tristan is a really smart guy, but he got so caught up in building an Excel table that he forgot that writing for a magazine is much, much (much) more work then posting on a blog. Here is my IM conversation with him five minutes ago explaining what he missed.
tnlnyc: FYI: more number crunching 🙂
Jasoncalacanis: fyi: your last number crunching was way off
tnlnyc: really I went through every entry on that day
tnlnyc: what did I miss?
