I agree that JSON's lightweight approach with data has been popular with developers. I singled out the tag manager systems because I felt the usage would be more clear for those who have some technical savvy but are not web developers.

Seems like yesterday when I was invited to check out AA. But thinking of how much I've learned through this site, I realize that yes, it really has been three years! Great work, AA team!

I hear you. My comment is from a web analytics perspective - the need to appreciate a data layer was not a required part of working with web analytics solutions, but it has increasingly become a feature as tag manager solutions were introduced. That was the influence for my comment.

I think the changes are forcing more discussion for vendors, agencies, and corporate teams about programming develop. There has always been a connection between web analytics and programming languages, but the increased usage of data layers for tag management, combined with using tag managers to control event tracking, has raised the profile for JSON, while APIs have brought noSQL and SQL integration concerns to analytics.
An aside, I apologize for the typo on nice. ;-) I just corrected it

It is fun to look back at the articles, and see how the topics have expanded. As more people have come onboard, the topics have expanded from web analytics to business intelligence and the details that support it like data visulization. A2 has done a remarkable job of gathering the right topics in place to build and grow a community. Like you wrote, A2 should be proud, and has certainly had fun along the way.
