Will The Royal Wedding Break The Internet?

By Gerard @presurfer
If The Presurfer can't be reached this afternoon (European time) it's not my fault. Blame Prince William and Kate. When they kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, all bloody hell could break loose online.
Will The Royal Wedding Break The Internet?
Twitter feeds will be buzzing. Photos will be uploading. Web sites will be serving up live streams of the royals. It's possible that all this hullabaloo could shut down major websites, stall wireless networks and, generally, grind the digital chatter to a pace that would frustrate even the commonest of commoners.
It's pretty difficult to predict what exactly will happen to the Internet's pipes when the British royal wedding takes place. It's possible major websites will crash because of a traffic influx but the fact that the wedding starts at 6 a.m. ET means that quite a few people in the United States will wake up to watch it after it's already happened. That may lessen the burden on the Internet.
