You’ve heard about the Slashdot effect, where millions of tech geeks pounce on a link and bring the site’s server to its knees? Digg is a contender in this bandwidth brutality sweepstakes.
The front page of this tech-obsessed site changes frequently– clicking ‘refresh’ often brings up a few new links each minute or so, all real-time ranked depending on the number of hits they’re getting.
This morning’s biggest Digg swarm appears to be a horror story about a customer’s tribulations dealing with an online camera store.

  1. For what it’s worth, as of 1pm pacific time today our blog has recieved over 6 times the amount of traffic that we got the last time we were Slashdotted. We had no idea that Digg was really this powerful and appreciate the community spreading the message.
