Post 69: Is this a surprising number of thieves?

Over the last 24 hours, another ten folks have landed on this blog searching for a bit torrent download of William Gibson’s new book, ‘Spook Country,’ released yesterday in the USA.

That’s about half my traffic.

(Which is sad, but I haven’t flamed any PR for a while and that usually perks things up)

This site comes up as Google’s No. 2 and No. 3 hits on various searches for the torrent. My Twitter post on the subject is No. 1.

That makes the various posts on the subject responsible for more than 30 hits overall.

So what’s up with this?

  • Is 30 a large number of people looking for an audiobook torrent?
  • Is it surprising there is no torrent yet (that I, or the people landing here, can find)?*
  • Why do people think a blog would host a torrent? It’s asking  for trouble?

Anyway … watching this one play out will be mighty interesting as I learn more about the whole traffic caper …
* Not that I want to find one, just so you know.
