    Liveblog events like this (presuming it was a live blog?) do pretty well for page views, because they rely on people refreshing the page to get the latest information. I’d imagine full-blown Steve Jobs’ keynotes (eg at Macworld in January) get even better results.

    Of course, that’s against the potential for your whole server to die under the strain of things.
