So Google counts over 23 billion pages on the Internet — who cares? Nothing's really online until it's been "Dugg," "Farked," and "Boing Boinged." And when your new quirky blog post ("Meta-Katamari George Bush MacBook Pro Naked") gets passed around the memepool, it'll be surrounded by John Battelle's ads.
- Boing Boing, the four-writer blog approaching 1 million pageviews a day (not much smaller than the audience of the Colbert Report)
- Digg, the newer sexier Slashdot rumored to have declined a $40 million offer from Yahoo
- Fark, the giant trashy amusement park of the Internet
- Metafilter, incubator for trendy A-list bloggers
- Newsvine, where molehills become news headlines
- PopURLs, a new addition collecting popular links from Digg, Del.icio.us, and Furl
- PSFK, the trend-spotting blog by coolhunting consultant Piers Fawkes
- Reddit, a general-interest Digg-like site with even more instant voting gratification
As Valleywag friend and blogebrity watcher Kyle Bunch puts it, "Now an item can get run on BoingBoing, then dugg, then re-seen on popurls" — and Boing-Boinged, Newsvined, and Farked — and Battelle gets a cut each time.
