It seems something remarkable happened yesterday on this SE: A question was posted and already has 2k+ views (as of today) and getting a lot of answers, with lots of upvotes. That was maybe usual when the Philosophy SE beta launched, but it has never happened in recent memory.
So, what happened?
It would be nice to know how the question got all this attention. I think we could learn something from this. Do the mods and admins have any stats, referrals, and insight about this? (My guess is that it was somehow prominently referenced on one of the bigger SE, but that's just a hunch.)
BTW, I should point out: It's not the case that I don't think the question deserves all this attention. It's a wonderful question, with the right balance between personal perspective and general philosophical relevance. I just don't think the intrinsic merits of the question can explain all this attention.
