Haven't you noticed that the definition of "widely visited site"
changes regularly, and often quite abruptly? How much traffic did YouTube get 3 years ago? Facebook? MySpace? There is no
shortcut for eternal vigilance, i.e. manage your BGP relationships
don't just configure and forget.

I hear that computers can be programed to create and maintain a list of sites one's own customers visit frequently. The same computer (so I'm told) could also determine which AS has authority to announce the IPs for each site. The same computer (so I'm told) could also watch for announcements from other ASs for the IPs from this up-to-date "widely visited sites" list, and send out an alert or otherwise take action when such an announcement was seen. It would be wonderful if someone would write and share code to do just this.
