I'd be remiss not to link to one of my favourite Edmonton-based bands, Audio/Rocketry. Saw them a couple of years ago opening for Jason Webley and fell in love immediately.
Been hearing this song on the radio more and more, and it's just as catchy every time. It's "Headphones" by the Mounties, a Canadian band put together by Hawksley Workman, Hot Hot Heat's Steve Bays, and Age of Electric's Ryan Dahle. I like Hawksley already, but this is a small poppier departure for him, style-wise. I like it.
I noticed on Medium that they're posting "read time" estimates for their articles. I thought this was a great idea, and came across this while looking for a code snippet that might do this for me.
After testing my estimated time theory on nearly 3,000 visits, I have some results. Showing an estimated time improved time on site by 13.8%. What's more interesting though—people either followed me, subscribed to my blog, or retweeted my articles 66.7% more often.
