Too Kottke for his britches

Jason Kottke recently gave an interview to blogger Leah Peterson. The blogging designer, who's actually a really nice guy, couldn't help but let all the recent media attention go to his head. Oh well, what blogger isn't a Walter Mitty of traffic numbers?

I don't link to videos on sites that look like they might not be able to handle the bandwidth...I don't want to be responsible for anyone's monster end-of-the-month bandwidth bill. The denizens of Slashdot are gleeful about taking down people's servers; I am not.

Maybe Kottke traffic can take down a personal blog or two. But for the record, only 210 web sites are more popular than Slashdot (according to Alexa). Over 12,000 (again, Alexa) are more popular than Kottke.org.
