Michael and I decided today that we’re going to try to do everything we can to get ScribbleLive ready for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC08) in a couple weeks. I know, we’re insane
Last year, the keynote on MacRumors drove over 200,000 simultaneous visitors to their site. We’re by no means that well known, but assuming everything goes great and we get Dugg or something, we could be looking at uniques in the six-digits. For our Ajax updates, that means tens of thousands of hits per second!
As we get closer to the keynote on June 9th, we’re going to scale up our grid servers, and supplement that with a CDN. Still waiting to see who we’re going to go with but we’ve got 8 business days to figure that out
I’ll be blogging our progress with our scaling over the next couple of weeks. If you have any suggestions or want to help out, drop me a line in the comments. Also, check out our new WWDC08 area on ScribbleLive. It’ll be pulling together all the liveblogs of people attending the conference. If you’re at the conference, we’d love you to try out ScribbleLive If you do, I’ll totally buy you a drink if you’re ever in Toronto!
Thank again to everyone who has tried out ScribbleLive since the TechCrunch story broke last week. It’s been great hearing all your comments.
