HAT a day over at
Digg.com! 3 of my story submissions have reached the front page; and the day is not over, yet.
I have recently accumulated some friends in this social networking platform and, to be honest, this sometimes makes me feel like a groupie in a game which is not democratic. People who acquire friends are more likely to have their submissions rapidly popularised. We shall see if Digg version 3, which is due to be released this Monday, will somehow correct for this tendency by deterring excessive mutual ‘digging’.
All my stories, by the way, are posted in defence of GNU/Linux and/or Open Source software. I truthfully do this in the spirit of freedom and openness.
Update (8:35 PM): It’s now 4 (stories in the front page), with the possibility of 5 by the end of the day!
