The pig in the python

Last week I sent a link to a picture of an octopus tattoo to P.Z. Myers at Pharyngula. I thought he might find it amusing, since he’s a big fan of cephalopods. He included the link in one of his posts, and today I noticed just how many people came to have a look at it. I guess P.Z. has a very substantial readership, since that little link made a big impact here. I know from experience that only a small percentage of people will follow any particular link on a site, so I can just imagine what his daily traffic is like. It was our first day in a long time of over 3000 site visits, and our first-ever day with over 1GB of traffic.

It’s not quite the “Slashdot Effect“, but it’s still interesting to see.
