Reading a reference to David Hume at InstaPundit just now prompted me to wonder about memes propagating and weblogs and all of that kind of thing. So InstaPundit is prodigiously popular in a blog kind of way, and the activities of a mostly-anonymous and self-selecting public are affected by posts posted there, right? Okay. Then here's what I want to know: Will some small proportion of readers of InstaPundit come to look up information about David Hume because of the reference there on InstaPundit? 'Course they will.

But how many? It's a flapping-butterfly-wing→storm-in-India situation, sure, but how many? Really, I want to know.
