Has anyone seen statistics on Internet traffic on Sept. 11 and 12? If so,
where? I noticed that the major news websites were really "slow" on Sept.
11. I also heard the CEO of Earthlink on NPR talk about huge spikes in
traffic to his member sites. He also mentioned that e-mail use was down, and
the use of synchronous chat was up. I'm teaching a CMC class and would love
to talk about it in class.
