Jacksons Death was 3rd largest web event of the year

Yesterday's funeral and memorial service for Michael Jackson was the third biggest Web event of the year, failing to be as big as news of Jackson's death, or Barack Obama's inauguration, Peter Kafka reports. Akamai, which operates a content delivery network, says it delivered 2,185,000 "live and on-demand streams" yesterday-far less than the 7 million-plus streams it delivered during Obama's inauguration.

An unfortunate event like this needs no advertising. I feel that would be in bad taste. However it would be good to provide the viewers with live, up to date and complete coverage to keep brand loyalty and provide a good service the viewers. Very interesting though.
