[Archimedes Death Ray: Idea Feasibility Testing. MetaFilter](http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/45793#1071788 “Archimedes Death Ray: Idea Feasibility Testing. MetaFilter”)

When I see things like this, I immediately scoff at the idea that Digg is worth $30 million. On Slashdot you had a lot of the same people commenting and on MeFi, you have the actual TV host making a comment. I think Digg is trying so hard to be something Slashdot was back in the .comboom. It’s basically trying to be a tech site for the newer generation, the 2.0 type of people. It’s doing nothing innovative aside from some trendy AJAX tricks, It’s running the same news that everyone else is blogging about.

ok on topic

I really love the idea of Adam going onto a site, even before the show was finished to talk about the Archimedes Death Ray. That’s just cool.
