the biggest audience ever
This Sunday I wrote here about micromorts and terrorism. Then someone has posted a link to the article on Hacker News, and that link got lots of comments and "upvotes". As a result more than 13 000 people have read that short post. I think it's the biggest audience I have ever had. It feels good to know that attention was spent on a serious post, and not on jokes or cat pictures.
At first I wished all these comments were posted here instead of Hacker News, but then I realised I'd spend just too much time trying to respond to every last one of them. Also these comments are of surprisingly high quality.
