I just had to share this achievement by Mike Masnick as he might not see it himself.
The Techmeme page updates extrememly frequently pulling in stories algorithmically with some additional human curation but I have never seen one writer with a lead story and 2 additional reference posts without any additional “noise”, unless you count the larger child branch below. He has one post in that child branch as well.
I am not going to link to the posts… that would most likely spoil the “triple rainbow”.
Even more remarkable:- none of the articles were “fluff”, and Mike wrote 14 posts on 12th January.
p.s. I am sure it has happened before, either for Mike or other highly productive writers especially with the way publishing platfroms can publish content at a specified future time so it could even be engineered. But someone has to actually see it, and note it as something special, as it would still take considerable effort.
Just like a double rainbow
