http://www.paulgraham.com/hackernews.html Paul Graham on Hacker News, and building community on news aggregation sites: “The most dangerous thing for the frontpage is stuff that’s too easy to upvote. If someone proves a new theorem, it takes some work by the reader to decide whether or not to upvote it. An amusing cartoon takes less. A rant with a rallying cry as the title takes zero, because people vote it up without even reading it.” 09:40
