I don’t know the average, but it’s a pretty wide range. Right now, there are almost 400 items in queue, some of them being a couple years old. The more I go through them, the more there always seems to be. As far as criteria, I guess I just go on whether it’s timely, interesting, geeky, funny etc. There isn’t really any solid basis on whether something makes the front page… it’s just my whim. However, there are still things in queue that are over a year old that I mean to publish if I ever get to page 60 of the queue with other news always going on.
