Remarkable social dynamics of hacker news


so much incentive to get to the top. when you post, you’re there for a second and then you hit refresh and you’re gone. day after day people post. comment. thoughtfully. cheekily. mercilessly. what a place. they bring in their friends to vote and comment. you’re never at the top when you want it. but sometime somehow it works out so that everyone gets their fifteen minutes at the top.

It is a really amazing ecosystem. I’ve never really gotten into it but I really respect the approach. No fluff, just community curated tech news.
