15 minutes of fame

I was almost Slashdotted (or in my case “Scripted”) the other day. When checking the stats for my blog I noticed three times as many visitors on May 11 (about 180 page visits) than on a normal day, which I found odd, especially since I hadn’t posted anything that day. When going through the referring links I found a post from Scripting News which I later realized is an established blog, even ranked #17 on Technorati Top 100. It’s really silly, but seeing that your blog actually has an audience is quite an ego booster.
