Faster Stats? Google buys Urchin

Paul, · Categories: General, Information Commons

We gave up on all the free ways to get stats for ibiblio.org since processing our 13 million hits per day (not including errors or streaming or a few other things) took over 24 hours for most programs. Instead we threw down and bought/licensed Urchin. It works great.
Now Urchin announces that it will be acquired by Google. Does that means faster stats? Or will we be among the first to get a Gstats invite? (oops! Already a program called that).
