I like to read Hacker News at Y Combinator. And I like to see how comments and points build up over time.
Some days ago I got this very stupid idea: what about making news run like horses in a race. In this way I could instantly spot the leading news.
So I wrote this bookmarklet and now I’m hooked. I can’t give up on it. Many times I just hit reload to see who’s leading the race now. I’m totally addicted.
Drag and drop this link to your bookmarks bar, and rename it to HN Horse Race.
