I don't find Ken Lay's death amusing, but what I do find quixotic is that the story of Amanda Congdon leaving Rocket Boom took up all the top spots on TailRank yesterday. Ken Lay's death was the next item in line.
Tail Rank captures what people are talking about in the blogosphere and most of its rating algorithm depends on how many links are swapped for a given story. I guess Rocket Boom is more interesting to talk about than the death of an Enron exec with massive legal troubles.
Telling, isn't it?
