I had a few goofs in the code that computed the name weights in this post, including a parenthesis typo that caused an operator precedence problem and (egad!) having the weight factors for frequency and dispersion reversed.

Here’s a corrected graph, with a larger version linked behind it.

Top 50 Biblical Characters by Frequency and Dispersion (medium size), Take 2

Jeremiah and Joab have each climbed up 5 ranks, their (relative) frequency and dispersion being somewhat different from their neighbors. Otherwise, most of the top 50 are within one or two places of their previous (incorrect) rank.

I’ve left the original there to maintain my humility :-/
