Interesting that so much of Hubski is in America.

Any ideas as to why?

The Hubski team is all in the US and Canada, and the first users were mostly based in the US. I assume that has influenced the topics, discussion, and hours of activity on the site.

I'd love to see that percentage decrease, but I can't tell you what it was last year.

I would have thought we have more users in Canada honestly

Yes, really. But today they beat out Italy.

I know a couple of active Hubskiers are in Vancouver. Our GeoIP setting is the crappy default one. I wonder if they get grouped into Seattle?

Ah yes, from our Piwik console:

    You do not appear to have accurate Geolocation setup. This is a useful feature and without it you will not see accurate and complete location information for your visitors.

    ...

    The default location provider guesses a visitor's country based on the language they use. This is not very accurate, so we recommend installing and using GeoIP.

How does it differentiate US from Canada? Color vs. colour? Apparently, even what little we know is wrong.

I think the Canadian hub wheel is made of hockey pucks.

Thanks. I expect you also appreciate my prompt reply.
