Slashdot reports that the geeky comic xkcd has changed the number of Google results for “Died in a blogging accident” from 2 to over seven thousand in just 24 hours. It’s past 12,000 now.
The comic in question.
This strikes me as hilarious. Not that a webcomic had this effect, but that Slashdot would report on it with wonder. That’s the way it’s supposed to work, isn’t it? Am I missing something?
