WordPress/Automattic: Monthly Unique Visits and Employees, Part 2

Last year I copied the employee and visit count of WordPress and posted this here. Now one year later the situation is still similar. The data is again from Work With Us.

Company Name Monthly Uniques (US) Employees
Google.com 204M 52,069
Facebook.com 135M 7,185
WordPress.com 131M 283
eBay.com 115M 33,500
Yahoo.com 89M 12,200
Twitter 87M 3,300
Amazon.com 79M 132,600

It is still astounding that WordPress clearly sticks out to have that many visitors with so few employees. Add to this that all employees are working from home, see “The New Digital Company: Distributed, Online, and Transparent”, which I reblogged.


NASA Shutdown due to USA Government Shutdown

The world largest economy shut down its most prestigious space center agency.


Wikipedia provides some background information here: government shutdown. Regarding NASA it says: NASA will furlough 98% of its staff, leaving fewer than 600 out of more than 18,000 employees on the job. NASA will continue to support the astronauts on the International Space Station and the agency will maintain spacecraft that have already launched. However, work with unmanned spacecraft will be minimal. The Hubble Space Telescope, Curiosity and Opportunity Mars rovers will continue to operate, but analysis of the data it collects will cease.

Added 18-Oct-2013: NASA is online again.
