  1. Beware the biased sample of respondents!
    Someone whose birthday is the same as yours would have been more likely to notice your daily blogg about a birthday and more likely to leave a comment there since they had something special to add.
    Will’s comment above is correct, but only for a random sample.
    Hope this makes sense and I’m not being a kill-joy!
    Rog.

  2. Well, I found Daniel’s blog from ToxicCustard, when that used to get published on Usenet. Actually, I say “used to” – I haven’t been on Usenet in 2 years, so I have no idea whether it’s still there.

    I noticed we share a birthday last year too, and posted to say so. So I’m not one of the “ooh this guy’s got my birthday also lets stalk him on his blog” crowd :)

    Those interested in birthday-sharing statistical phenomenae might want to check out this Wikipedia article:

    It’s rather interesting.

    Cheers
    Graeme
