|Slashdot, Google and Slack|
Rodney Gedda's writeup of my talk on Slack (which by the way is in no way a comment on Slackware, or derived from Slackware) got slashdotted today. I am assured by Alan that the download link stayed up just fine, despite benley's best efforts. To be honest, I wasn't expecting this level of attention, although the tool is very cool.
Other press coverage (that I am aware of) for my AUUG talks includes:
Obviously many of these articles recycle content, and the links above still include the Google News redirects, because it's easier than editting them out by hand.
(I have been slashdotted before, for TwinkleTux, and another time with the review for the ImageMagick book. Then there was the time that one of my articles about ImageMagick got slashdotted (direct link), but for some reason the sequel didn't.)
