Ideally, I should give you hit statistics from from SSVE 2008. I watched it closely at the time, but I don't think I recorded or post(ed?) it anywhere. And I use the free Stat Counter so I can't retrieve data beyond the last 500 hits. Sorry.
But we did get over 500 in the first two days if that helps. Individual pics on Flicker still get hits. This year, I'll monitor my Flickr more closely as well.
