Tons of web sites mentioned my Christmas stuff up until Xmas, including
a LOT of traditional media as the
story went out on the AP National Wire - heck, even had TV stations coming
by for live shots cumulating in a
ride in the ABC-7 Helicopter where I provided a
live airborne report from 1,000' straight up! ;-)
There was another tornado of media frenzy
after I revealed
the christmas hoax.
I talk in detail about the traffic from some of these in my
Slashdot Effect analysis.
where I also tried took a shot at tracking the impact from the first
Associated Press article that was been picked up ... welllll ... just about
everywhere. The data does not fully account for all traffic on the komar.org
site, plus I was mirroring some content.
