1%-rule

I learn new things every day. I especially love to learn things from all my nerdy friends, because they teach me things I would never have known without their help. Now I have learned this:

You know what this is? This is the 1%-rule. It states that only 1% of those who use internet communities create anything there, 9% edit what is already there and the remaining ┬á90% are lurkers. A friend mentioned it because we talked about wikipedia, and then I thought that it is true for blogs as well. I follow a whole lot of blogs, but don’t comment on any of them. And then I wondered how many who reads this one, and don’t comment. It just shows that even though the internet is a wonderful creation, it is a very different way of participating in public life.
