Link Love and the Viral Spike

Worlds collide! Both Current’s Sarah Haskins and Snarkmarket’s guest-blogger Matt Penniman are mentioned approvingly in this BBC Web Monitor post. (Via Tim.)

The BBC also points to an op-ed by Bill Wasik in the NYT, which I am drafting into service in our Snarkmarket Forum on Free (Related Topics Division). It’s about the new “big break”—the viral spike!—which is made possible, after all, by the friction-less power of free.

Well, that and the internet.

BTW, I love Sarah Haskins so, so much.

How much?

I subscribe to three video feeds on RSS. The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Sarah Haskins.

That's how much.

Name-checked by the BBC! I'm feeling a twinge of microcelebrity myself.

Bill Wasik's op-ed adds a nice dimension to our forum -- thanks for the heads-up.
