Digg comment whoring success [Jan. 8th, 2008|03:08 pm]

For those who don't know Digg, it's a social bookmarking site that allows people to "digg" a story up or "bury" it. The most dugg stories hit the front page and the servers they're hosted on frequently crash under the weight of all the traffic (I think about 70,000-100,000 visitors in a day). Anyway, I comment on stories on digg now and then and managed to comment on one posted by a fellow blogger I read right after he posted it. I knew the story would get a lot of attention, but I didn't know it would get over 4,000 diggs in a day and my little comment got over 500 diggs so far.

The interweb is a funny place.
