Weekend warning: tech talk typically tapers off
Here's a pattern I saw before the site went public: Weekend conversation on tech.memeorandum can grow somewhat anemic, with fewer headlines, less frequent updates, and quirkier material. Why? There's a tendency in many tech blogs to go dormant on the weekend. So do tech bloggers enjoy the sunshine and fresh air? Possibly!
This isn't a hard and fast rule. Bombshells get bombshell coverage anytime. But it is a pattern.
Interestingly, the Politics (etc.) page usually holds up pretty well. It's a sizzle that will not fizzle. I guess the politicos just know how to keep up the passion!
