Why Is the blog getting so many hits

Assuming that Statcounter has not gone crazy, I have seen a surge in hits to the BI blog (not seen since Tom Kyte linked to this blog when it was launched - see his post). See the chart above and you can see that the average traffic to the blog has basically more than doubled, without any seemingly obvious explanation... So while I am certainly not complaining, and while I wish I had a thousand dollars for every hit (yes - I would rather not wish for pennies and get even less - as long as I am wishing let's make it count, in the rather remote possibility that it actually comes true), I would like to know what's driving the traffic. Statcounter won't collect details on more than a 100 hits at a time, so that doesn't help either. Hmm... maybe Google Analytics!
