Title text: This comic shows estimated average frequency. I wanted to include the pitch drop experiment, but it turns out the gif format has some issues with decade-long loops.
Chatting with my friends in Aideron Robotics, the question came up: "Wouldn't it be cool to do that for EVE data?" Conveniently, I happened to have that data somewhat handy. Unfortunately, as I said in my previous post, I was lacking the time to work on it.
To keep this short and sweet: this was a lot of fun to collaborate on. Where I had the data, Lukas had the know-how. And the turnaround time, being published 2 days after XKCD posted, was phenominal. We're still arguing behind the scenes about the time dilation factor (@ashterothi suggested a slider, which might solve everyone's issues). We are chatting about teaming up on more data projects in the future, and I look forward to putting our tools together!
A few addendums.
@ashterothi originally suggested the "wouldn't it be cool if..." comment that compelled me to scrape the data and throw it out to #tweetfleet
Lukas also pushed an page that chronicles the big B-R5RB fight: http://pozniak.pl/evestats/br5rb/
