I find it impossible to even find the posts on HN. Within a few
hours of them being posted by Andrei, they are buried 4-5 pages
deep in the 'new' section with very few upvotes.
Last year I saw most of the talks (DConf13) on HN and
r/programming. This year I find them only on this forum because
the talks are not staying up on HN or r/p front pages for much

impressive it seems to me compared to last year :(
r/programming and hn is all about rust and go. on hn many d
posts are invisible after some time. i believe mods are taking
action there. if we want their attention, we should compare d
with others; we should benchmark d and brag about the results
etc. other than that, people are not paying attention to D and
it's beautiful features.
and also the genius idea to post each talk seperately instead
of having a nice talks page on dconf.org and providing a link
for that. i'd understand the keynotes but for the rest of the
talks this is / was not a good idea.
