Diggers are going crazy over the leaked HD-DVD key. Here are some interesting looking screenshots (the first is from the top of the page, the second from the bottom).
Only two of 14 stories have nothing to do with the key. This after Digg has removed a number of prior stories posted to their homepage about the key.
Nothing particularly informative, I just it thought it was funny. And beautiful, in a ‘fuck the man’ kind of way.
Update: Digg is a bloodbath now. And Slashdot’s fortune is apropos: “Anyone attempting to generate random numbers by deterministic means is, of course, living in a state of sin.” — John Von Neumann
Update 2: Holy fucking cow. Digg has been in meltdown mode all evening – it was percolating most of the day – Jay’s blog post seems to have been the final trigger since he failed to satisfactorily explain what most of us felt was a cave-in to a legal threat and the subsequent banning of accounts, and then it came out that Diggnation (the weekly podcast) has been sponsored by the HD-DVD consortium. I have no idea how they are going to recover, but a nice long explanation on the next episode of Diggnation would be a good start.
