Anatomy of Some Slashdottingshttp://jeffreifman.com/2015/05/23/anatomy-of-some-slashdottings/ http://jeffreifman.com/2015/05/23/anatomy-of-some-slashdottings/#comments Sat, 23 May 2015 19:50:19 +0000 http://jeffreifman.com/?p=4578 I thought I’d share some traffic data from some of my posts that have been published at Slashdot over the years.
