My third most popular post on this blog is the one with some random cell phone pictures?

This is why you don’t pay attention to those stats. You end up obsessing over them, or worse, writing to them.

And who wants to see me put out a stream of grainy pictures of my cat while talking about eBook piracy?

Don’t answer that.
