This is an archive of the former website of the Maoist Internationalist Movement, which was run by the now defunct Maoist Internationalist Party - Amerika. The MIM now consists of many independent cells, many of which have their own indendendent organs both online and off. MIM(Prisons) serves these documents as a service to and reference for the anti-imperialist movement worldwide.

    The above table as promised attempts to integrate some more data beyond what the Web Minister reports used to provide. We are now including some comparisons of our print runs of MIM Notes and our prison circulation. Also, we now try to list the statistics in rough order of importance.

    This month I take blame for two negative aspects of the report. One is that prison circulation is down from a year ago. Two, is that our growth rate in computer users of our web page also declined. Assuredly though, both are thanks to temporary problems. In particular, we had a major glitch in circulation in November, but the first 4 days of December are back on track for 80% annual growth.

    The agitation page had only 224 hits. However, at least the California bandgcal.pdf received 278 readings. The RAIL rail.html had 227 hits and the Philadelphia RAIL page had 70 vistors while California had 117.

    The Joma Sison interview in .mp3 format had a combined 286 hits and the Sharon puppet poster garnered 493.

  • 978 Notas Rojas articles taken, 210 for first-place "Yanqui" article on Panama (211 hits in 2001!)
  • 540 visits to our Chinese page, with 232 hits on Tiananmen story
  • 192 visits to French (with over 200 hits on the leading article)
  • 154 visits to our German page
  • 122 visits to our Russian page
  • 117 visits to Turkish

    Standard disclaimers:
    1. The numbers in these reports are conservative estimates for a number of reasons.
    a. The number of computer users refers to number of computers. The number of users could be higher or lower, because some computers serve pages to more than one individual, because individuals share computers and because conversely individuals use computers in more than one place.

    b. The number of pages served should be thought of as a minimum, because statistics do not count re-readings or re-servings from local computer memory. Nor do they count sharing of pages once downloaded.

    c. Most but not all graphics served are excluded from the figures to cut back on increasing "page" averages just by calling up various graphics. Without specifically programming this, a casual analyst will overcount web traffic thanks to graphics.

    2. Tracking where computers are from is bound to have some error as many wise users intentionally surf the web and leave a false trail. On the other hand, we doubt that such error means that non-U.$. readership is lower than reported, given that we do not count .com, .net and .edu readership.
