Would like to advocate for a practice when releasing useless business statistics: try to come up with a way of framing the statistic in an abstract way so no one mistakes it for data.

That point where I realized I've been involved in open communities my entire life? Yeah, I wrote a blog about it. From rural America to open source: Communities all the way down
