I really like that the folks on this site challenge the spacing on the x-axis and note the slope's derivative and that the zero time point may be at 20K. Nice to know that there are some educated and savvy folks out there. Looking at political campaigns, one can get the impression that savvy is dead.The graph shows reservations started at 0 on Thursday - I assumed the published reservation #s included Tesla and SpaceX employees. So maybe when this graph started it was around 20-30k?
Of course that doesn't change much in terms of the message, and the graph is still super illustrative (and including the first derivative was a great idea)!
That's the plan.It would be great if we could set Time 0 to 3/30/2016 21:00 UTC (8 AM in Sydney and Melbourne).
When I plot the reservations myself I get a nice S-shaped density-dependent growth curve.
