My post from yesterday on Blog Torrent, which appeared first at The Broadband Daily, has been Slashdotted, a first for me. The surprisingly huge number of comments generated can be seen here. Looks like a helluva lot of fairly jaded people have way too much time on their hands, but there are some interesting points raised which are worthy of following up. Unfortunately, as The Broadband Daily site was crippled by the traffic, many of the comments being made seem to be based on a premise that the intent is to steal existing copyrighted content. The obvious point of the piece was about creating an easier mechanism for distributing independently-created content. Then again, I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity.
