Yuvi analyzes Raymond Chen’s blog

Raymond Chen is one of the smartest developers at Microsoft and he writes a blog which is one of the most popular at Microsoft (if not THE most popular). He writes about why Windows does weird things. Anyway, the 15-year-old Indian wunderkind Yuvi puts his analysis tool to the test again, this time on Raymond’s blog. Finds that most of Raymond’s posts are made at 7 a.m. He theorizes that Raymond is actually a bot and that there’s no human there. Well, I know Raymond (his new book is quite excellent, by the way) and I know that Raymond just programmed his blog tool to post a post on his behalf every day (he writes and batches them up). Not quite interactive, but fine for someone who is trying to share his knowledge with the world.

  2. 7′oclock: I too know that Robert. I did that because, he mentions here[http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2005/08/19/453614.aspx] that “one reasearcher IM’d him, saying *most* of his posts come out at 7:00 am.”

    I just wanted to quantify how much of it.:D

    Thanks for the link!

  8. Prasanthm: huh? Raymond Chen is one of my favorite bloggers and Yuvi’s analysis is interesting. It’s just one post. Go read my link blog if you don’t like this one.

  11. Sorry for the comment on an old post, but Robert you should know this one already. Raymond does employ some automated posting. I remember looking at his queue of future posts when I worked at Microsoft. For one, it allows him to post regularly when he is away. My guess is this system skews the count.

    Here’s the first line of the “Is Raymond a Bot?” section:
    Note: This section is a piece of poorly attempted humor.
    :) Also, see the second comment by me….
