Thanks for such a great input, George!

Hello Isis,

> I think such an infographic will be quite interesting.
> I feel that some of the most important PT numbers we are missing have to do
> with the bridge distribution problem. The way I see it, PTs and BridgeDB are
> two pieces of the same puzzle, and weirdly I've never seen any statistics from
> BridgeDB.
> Specifically, here are some example statistics that I would find interesting:
> - How many clients use BridgeDB?
> - Which distributors are used most?
> - Which PTs are asked most?
> - What % of clients are using Tor vs connecting directly?
> - What are the most popular client countries?
> - How many unique bridges does BridgeDB give out daily/weekly
> - Did BridgeDB usage decrease with the introduction of meek?
> Some of the above statistics might also require some privacy-preserving
> obfuscation before publishing.

Is it feasible and easy to extract (any of) the information George
listed above? I need to have all the information we want to put on this
infographic by the end of next week.

> I'm still not sure why we have no statistics on BridgeDB. It seems something
> that could point us to future research directions, and generally help us in
> strategizing against censors.

I've created https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/19332 for this.
