It would be good if this Open Science Stack Exchange would expose its data in as openly a manner as possible.

There is an API that provides much of the data (e.g. on questions, users, badges) but in the documentation, I could not find any traffic/ view stats, nor the licensing of these site-generated data.

Then you have queries in data SE (but that is once you get into public). Regardless, the main focus should not be about looking at the data, but focusing on getting this site into public. That consists mostly of voting, and priming the site with quality content.

[Area51](http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/65426/open-science) provides some site-level stats but does not seem to provide per-post traffic in a way that could be aggregated and/ or resliced by tags, author, day of the week or some other variables.

There's Area51, what more do you need? It provides questions, views, answers statistics. That data is live too.
