Some new features on www.BlackoutSOPA.org and scaling notes from the amazing @Grex who chugged through the night on this stuff:
- Right out of the gate yesterday we hit > 30QPS -- everyone hates SOPA even more than I realized :)
- major speed revamp! now with load balancers, even more caching, and the whole kabang. (we had no clue/expectation that we were gonna get that much attention on day0. that poor single amazon box was getting beaten up until the evening when it was finally decommissioned...)
- SOPA resources at bottom of page
- added a rotating list of "and thanks also @..." which randomly pulls from the top30 most popular users of the service (by follower count)
- add a follow button
If you can help in any way - especially getting this adopted by people outside the tech community - pls let me know in the comments.
