Our OSCON speaker interview series ran from July 7 through July 18. We published 18 interviews, ten of which got more than 1,000 page views. Particularly, Jodi Biddle's interview with Docker's James Turnbull went big on Hacker News, bringing in almost 20,000 page views. The interviews brought in almost 40,000 page views in aggregate.
