I'd forgotten all about the Kinja leaderboard, so when I rediscovered it today and found ODeck's very own Ursus Veritas (aka James Whitbrook) at number 35 and rising I squealed with delight. For all I know, James has tracked higher on the board previously but that is beside the point. Ursus is in the top 40 and as a kid who regularly listened to the Casey Kasem countdown on the weekends, it is not lost on me how awesome that is. Mr Whitbrook is killing it and doing better than some of Gawker Main's regulars. Plus he is the only one in the top 40 with an animated avatar and I find that charming.
