The trouble with ohloh

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Thursday, August 2. 2007 in Programming

The trouble with ohloh (and other type sites) is: inaccurate and misleading metrics are more dangerous, and less useful, than non-readily-available ones. Until "value" parameters can someone be applied (eg: this 10 line patch did "more" than this 100 line patch that did almost nothing), these types of "statistics" are fun to look at, but really useless.
