First 48 hours of The Wall

It’s been both surprising and humbling to observe how people have interacted with The Wall since it’s announcement on Wednesday.

After discovering some issues with our clustering providers and optimizing code on the site, we’ve been able to keep the site humming. It’s not easy to quickly serve up a 20GB image - one of the biggest, if not the biggest on the Web - to thousands of people anxious to explore and contribute to it.

Despite some hiccups at the start, we saw a remarkable ratio of visitors contributing highly compelling comments and photographs. Here are just a few:
