What kind of data does Hubski keep? I'd love to be able to do some data mining as it grows/changes.

We keep what you see here, and the relationships that tie them together, but not much else.

What kind of data would you be interested in?

Off the top of my head:

-Total number of users -Posts/Comments in a single day -Active users in a single day (as in, those who posted or commented) -Lurkers per day (people who "vote" but don't post/comment) -Post listing on feeds (not sure how I'd figure this one out. I guess basically a klout rating for posts? Not sure this is a good idea. I'll think about it)

Right now I'm mostly curious how/at what speed hubski is growing, and what that growth looks like in terms of content and use of hubski. It will definitely be interesting to see what users become the "face" of Hubski, and if that occurs. I know that this is a little purist of me, but I think there's got to be a better way of doing this than the "popular" tool, since that runs into the same problems of just promoting what's already popular and snowballing.

I'm not sure what mk has / allows access to.
