The Plone Metrics' Number of the Year

Remember last year:  "Therefore, be it resolved that I shall post to Plone Metrics at least monthly in 2014."  Not exactly an epic failure, but only 50% success.  I hereby grant myself resolution absolution.  (Thanks for the concept, Over the Hedge.)  At least I've turned the corner on frequency of Plone Metrics blog posting.

'Tis the Season

Yes, it's that time of the year when everyone has misplaced apostrophes everywhere -- T'is the Season.  Just remember, "Axial tilt is the reason for the season," at least when you're an astronomer's son.  

Not only is it ChrisKwanFestNukkStice, it's just a week away from New Year's Eve.  That can mean only one thing:  Plone Metrics Person of the Year and chasing away the wolf that ate the sun (thx to @LeVostrCG).  I'm now accepting suggestions for a metric that can be used to differentiate one member of the Plone community from all the rest of this amazing group of people who keep the wheels of Plone spinning.

By way of a recap, here's past years' winners. 

2007 Alexander Limi
2008 Joel Burton
2009 Nate Aune
2010 Eric Steele
2011 Toby Roberts
2012 Martijn Pieters
2013 Elizabeth Leddy

Whether I've used personal experience, quality of contribution, OhLol measures, or something else, it's always been a difficult decision.  Too many good people doing great things.  If you have an idea for this year's metric, pop me a line @schlepp on Twitter.
