Brainzers around the world

Nikki and I are randomly hacking on MusicBrainz when I became curious about the distribution about brainzers around the world. One SQL query later we have:

country | count

———+——-

fr | 1664

de | 1498

uk | 1031

dk | 746

ru | 670

nl | 454

pl | 409

ca | 348

au | 271

it | 270

This is compiled from email addresses of registered users that use their country top level domains. This obviously cuts out all the .net, .com, .org addresses, which is a lot of people. But this gives a decent idea of the reach that MusicBrainz has into the nooks and crannies of the planet. It turns out that we have members from 105 countries, which if we’re counting 238 country tlds, that comes to 44%. Wow!

Read on for the complete list…
