 The NextNY Digital Google Group was founded in March 2006.


As of April 1, 2009 it had 2169 members (note that there may be duplicates, that is members signed up with multiple addresses).


The Google Group does not provide an easy way to analyze messages (ie, message volume, who the top posters have been historically) and while some of the data is available either to members or the group managers, it’s not in a format that’s readily analyzable.  There’s also some just weird data, with several members showing a “join date” of 12/31/69 which indicates someone’s struct_tm got overrun somewhere.

The peak month for growth was November 2007 (139) followed by June 2007 (99) and September 2008 (97).  I believe those bursts correspond to events like MatchupCamp and @ShakeShack.

This is fudged a bit, the timestamps in the member database appear to be Pacific time so I shifted them by three hours.  There’s no way to tell if there's a DST adjustment or not.
