My copy of Empires of Eve arrived today so here are some unboxing shots. If you can get the hardcover edition, purchase it. The finish quality and artwork really stands out.
With the February 2016 Release 1.0 came the addition of skill trading. Since I’m recording jump activity, I thought it would be neat to see how busy the major trade hubs were on the opening day of the Brainmeat Market(TM) (almost registered tradmark @Lockefox) bazaar.

Another item to note is that we also saw an increase in the concurrent player count in Jita to 5,000.

If you have never attended a player gathering, it is an opportunity to witness the sheer passion, altruistic spirit, and friendless of the Eve community. Along with the playerbase, many of your favorite Devs are walking around, giving you the opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with them. I had the oppournity to personally thank CCP Seagull for her passion and dedication on delivering a renewed vision of Eve Online. Many thanks to my partner in crime for the weekend, Lockefox (@HLIBIndustry).

I’ve got a good base for Gallente so I just need to round out some Drone and support skills.
tl;dr The amount of Nullsec manufacturing has increased from July 23rd to August 23rd.
The evolution towards independent, self-sustainable manufacturing in Nullsec is an area of high interest to me. I want trade and manufacturing hubs to develop beyond what we have today, but given the need to import materials for invention and Tech 2 production, I don’t see it happening given the current industrial framework.
I wanted to see if the steps taken in Crius were moving us in the right direction so I turned to my data. I’ve been recording the system Index data from the API on an almost daily basis so I joined this data with sovereignty data to see if Nullsec manufacturing has been increasing.
The top 50 corporations by sum of their production have shown an increase on average of 46%. The overall change for all corporations has been 114%.
