The Digg Army, 20 trillion thousands strong

I met up with Gail and Marc this afternoon before going to the gym (a gym! you’re finally going to the gym? the full story for another day) to discuss some business. We talked about several things including some logistics that are being made in the WWW.

And so this question came up:
What do you do when your site is expecting a huge AS IN TIPPING POINT PROPORTIONS amount of traffic?

Here is what you can do:

1. Warn your webhost guy. If you’re friends, this is very easy to do. If you really hate the service of your host, you can go ahead and crash his server. Heehee.

2. Prepare the weapon of mass destruction: a killer headline, and an army of people with shovels

3. Spread the link love and let nature take its course
