edu, gov and tlds in en.wikipedia external links

Some folks over at Wikipedia Signpost asked if they could use some of the barcharts I’ve been posting here recently. They needed the graphs to be released with a free license, which was a good excuse to slap a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license on all the content here at inkdroid. I’m kinda ashamed I didn’t think of doing this before…

I was also asked how easy it would be to generate the .gov and .edu graphs, as well as top level domains. I already had the hostnames exported, so it was just a few greps, sorts and uniqs away. I’ve included the graphs and the full data files below. My friend Dan Chudnov suggested that plotting this data on a logarithmic scale would probably look better. I think he’s probably right, but I just haven’t gotten around to doing that yet. It’s definitely something I will keep in mind for an app that allowed this slicing and dicing of the Wikipedia external links data.
