Although I failed to beat Boutin's hit count, I still believe in the power of referral sites like Digg to bring smart content to users' attention. I'll continue to promote my own pieces on Digg with the transparent username "ShaferAtSlate," but I'll write more conventional summaries so I don't look like too much of a hit-hog. If I learn anything interesting—and I suspect I will—I'll return with my findings.
No, I'm not going to submit this piece to Digg. If you've got a digg and bury in mind, send it via e-mail to email@example.com. (E-mail may be quoted by name unless the writer stipulates otherwise. EarthLink folks: Turn off your spam filters if you want me to write back.)
