Bandwidth is very slow this morning in Kuala Lumpur so I'll keep today's edition short. According to a CBC report OCW is getting a milliin hits a month. Although 'a million hits' sounds like a lot, this works out to roughly 33,000 hits a day. That's not a lot for a large website. OCW has 2000 courses online, which means, on average, each course is hit 15 times a day. One person could do that by browsing a few pages! To put it into perspective, when my Referrer System was at its peak, it was getting 800,000 hits a day. Since I know the MIT Open Courseware site is popular, my first instinct is to question the statistic.
