Slashdot as many people know has a Journal entry feature, and to give another link to my resume I created the following journal entry,
Unix, Linux, C, C++, sometimes even Java.
St. Louis Missouri area.
I posed it at 8:58pm yesterday (12-08-2002), my first hit from slashdot came at 9:22pm, 24 minutes after I posted it, which surprised me. There were six more hits before the day ended. Unlike advogato, slashdot doesn't have a page listing the most recent journal entries. The only notification I know of on slashdot is if someone lists you as a friend, and one of the hits was one of my friends. Since it was also my first journal entry on slashdot I don't have people frequently checking to see when I update my entry. I did post two comments yesterday to two different slashdot stories, previously October was the last time I posted any comments.
I think that says a little about how many people wander around slashdot. Advogato I could understand, a link to this entry will be on the main page, but slashdot? I had two comments out of 254 for only two of the days stories. I counted a total of three links from the main slashdot page to even get to my journal.
