It is that time of year!  Time to celebrate what worked and what didn’t (yes I said celebrate what did not – without experimentation there is no growth). I have compiled the top ten interviews and and the top ten essays from the last year.

It is interesting that SPaMCAST 137 the top essay (and nearly the top podcast).  I believe it was popular due to Joseph’s great review.  I would like to include more reviews in 2012.  Another item that caught my eye was the meteoric rise of SPaMCAST 155 on Systems and Systems Thinking.  I need to back that up with an interview or three.  Do you have ideas on whom I should talk to?

Which of these or any of the other essays was your favorite and why?  Are there other observations you would make by looking at the list?  

Next the top ten interviews!
