Launch The New Hype Machine

Anthony’s not going to launch the new hype machine until he gets 10,000 people to show up there at the same time (I assume keeping your browser open there counts). He’s got 430 people right now, so he’s got a long way to go.

I’ve been playing with the beta and it’s a serious improvement, really a total relaunch. And it’s very slick. So do him and everyone a favor and point your browser here and go.

    totally lame. I say boycott the site and have it never come back online. I mean, I love the site, but pulling a stunt like making 10000 people log on at once is like asking to fail. who does he think he is?

    I’m opening it once in each of my browsers. I’m not sure if it is IP or cookie based, but it’s worth a shot 😉 . You should do the same.

    i love hype machine, but think it would be hilarious if 10,000 people thumbing around a new interface all at once crashed the site. I am sure they thought about that before this whole scheme kicked off, but it would be a nice payoff for those of us who have been waiting since we got to work this morning to check out the site.
