I was digging through the often enjoyable /Message and found a post where Stowe Boyd (proprietor of /Message) searched the word “message” on Google and found that his blog came in 9th. Not too shabby. Wikipedia came out on top (as is often the case).
So I decided to give “basement” a whirl and oddly enough, as of this post, it comes in second:
This is kind of exciting…or it isn’t, depending on how you look at it. I see two possible explanations:
- Basement.org is truly a first-class destination for the more cerebral among us interested in design, technology culture and emerging Internet trends.
- I’m competing with web sites that are about basements and cellars – not exactly a hot topic on the Internet these days (or any days for that matter).
I’m going to go with reason #1.
