Is GoobNet meeting its objectives?
Well, to answer that question, first we will have to figure out what our objectives are.
Certainly our Five Thrusts of knowledge, support, novelty, community, and variety are some of the things we should be delivering to you. But it's not enough just to provide things that make you smart, give you support, offer new experiences, bring you together, and differentiate themselves.
After all, remember that we have one node [GoobNet Football] devoted entirely to a single sport, and one node [Commitment to Space] devoted entirely to a single Universe. This strongly suggests that there are particular topics about which we want to provide things that make you smart, give you support, offer new experiences, bring you together, and differentiate themselves. These topics, obviously, are space, football, and space again.
Remember, this doesn't sum to the total number of Weekly Whines, as some of them were placed into two topics. Note the difference from when this information was last tabulated. Sport has easily overtaken space for first place, whereas mathematics has lagged behind considerably. It may be worthwhile to tabulate football separately from other sports, but we don't feel like doing that.
Each category includes its subcategories, so that, for example, the Community category includes thirty GoobNet Mailbox Whines, twenty Edvard Whines, and sixteen generic Community Whines.
Why has knowledge failed us so? Is it because there is a shortage of knowledge? Absolutely not. Is it because GoobNet staffers personally lack knowledge? Well, yes, in certain cases. Is it because knowledge is boring? Yes, that must be it.
But Whines that were included under Novelty and Variety frequently incorporate knowledge, do they not? In certain cases, this is true. But one should not rely on the GoobNet Focal Plane for all one's knowledge, just as one should not rely on The Daily Show for all one's news.
We have learned that GoobNet excels at novelty and variety, but that knowledge is sorely lacking, just as in the White House.
