I was hoping they would be successfull, because in a few weeks the next event will also require some interesting web site hosting. If it had worked, then the people who follow could just copy it. Even without a feed to push, the sites were unresponsive for parts of the day. http://www.newsbytes.com/pubNews/99/140268.html I'm very concerned we still haven't proven we know how to handle big event sites on the Internet.
