Flow T'Ain't What It Used to Be

An item I wrote on my Wi-Fi blog supporting Robert X. Cringely's position that Wi-Fi has some upcoming interference challenges was prominently linked from several well-known bloggers (Tomalak's Realm, Scripting News, Doc Searls's blog, Backup Brain), and yet resulted in just a few dozen clickthroughs to the article. In the old days, about one year ago, a mention on Scripting News was worth 1,000 clicks minimum, and similar but smaller amounts (at the very least) from the other sites even on topics like Wi-Fi networking.
