Is anyone else bothered by the near-invisibility in the blogosphere of the Russian invasion of neighboring Georgia?
Only time will tell whether comparisons to Hitler’s aggression are overblown or sadly prescient, but I do find it disturbing that Digg’s front page has no mention of the invasion (though it does find room for “Man has Sex with Steel Bench, Almost Loses Penis“.
Perhaps it’s just a reflection of the insulated world I live in (Silicon Valley), but I haven’t read a single post or Tweet on the invasion. In comparison, Gmail’s recent outage was treated as a banner headline.
Perhaps I’m being unfair. After all, foreign invasions don’t have a direct impact on Series A valuations. But it sure seems like there’s a lot of fiddling going on.
