Slashdotted

The company I work for made it on to the front page of Slashdot this week, which was a surprising and surreal experience.

So our team just launched a pretty neat site for OpenID. With this launch, we tried to get word around to the blogoshere and broader media. In our efforts, we even joked about the possibility of the site getting picked up on Digg, or somewhere.

Fortunately our server withstood all of the visitors from Slashdot… And now we know how it feels to have the passing, superfluous validation of being above-the-fold on a legendary blog for 20 minutes.
