Actually, if we're doing statistics on articles submitted, I'm 44th and you're
35th (I don't know what the time period was).  I suspect there's enough
variance in the numbers that one has to be careful in drawing conclusions from
them; for example, it's a function of available time and varying interest.

I also suspect interest tends to drop once the novelty wears off and you decide
what's worth your time and what isn't.

I've found the same is true of publications, interestingly enough; I've had less
time to read my magazines lately, and I'm not sure how much I'm missing.
SIGPLAN is one of the ones I miss less; I find some of the articles not
interesting to me because they're of interest mostly to specialists, and others
just don't seem useful at all.
