5by5 in 2011

For side project I needed to parse all the data feeds for 5by5 and extract some metadata about each show. Since I now had this data, I figured I run a few ‘2011 retrospective’ numbers. The results are interesting, well if you’re a 5by5 nerd like me. In 2011:

I did a quick graphic showing the relative contribution each show has to the overall 5by5 line-up. Each show’s logo is sized relative to their total duration’s percentage of the 700.1 total hours.

[Updated:] Thanks to Jason Richmond for pointing out that I missed a few retired shows from my count. These included: Boom, Outta Here, Briefly Awesome, The Daily Edition, The Dev Show, & The Expression Engine Podcast. I’ve updated the above numbers to now include these shows.
