CenterNetworks.com is a very informative blog that was relaunched in September 2006 to focus on the “new” Internet. As a daily reader of CenterNetworks I wanted to share with you a very interesting post they had today that talked about the potential of the Diggeffect being the demise of Digg.com. A snippet of their post is below…
From CenterNetworks: “At the time of this writing, three of the fifteen links to stories on digg.com‘s front page resulted in pages that would not load. In other words, the digg effect had sent it’s tidal wave over 20% of the servers hosting these stories. This problem does vary from time to time as there are days in which most of the front page stories are from large sites with plenty of bandwidth and then days where there are numerous stories from small sites with inadequate servers. I think today’s three of fifteen is a pretty average occurrence.”
