They are counting the days in the Gulf Disaster. “It is day 49 of the Gulf oil spill!” with the echo turned on. It is hard to listen to.
Digg started enforcing the bot problem they had. They lost 33% (13 million unique views) in a month earlier this year. Does that mean a third of their traffic was bots trying to drive up people's hits? That is frightening. I know I hate getting Digg links. I always thought it was a pyramid scheme for views. Guess I wasn't far off.
