Found March 31, 2013 on College Spun:
April Fools’ Day can be great fun, though it often depends which side of the jokes you wind up on. The guys over at Google Analytics decided that they would play an early prank on all the website nerds, like us, out there. Every website has access to maps that detail where its traffic is coming from — our traffic normally stems from the United States. However, it suddenly appeared that we were getting some traffic from the middle of the ocean — but after hovering over the dot we saw that it was coming from space!   After closer examination, we realized it was an April Fools’ Day prank (of course “41″ visitors): It appears we aren’t the only people to have noticed this, although some have not realized yet that it’s a prank: International Space Station showed up in my Google analytics. That is pretty cool. twitter.com/VanceCrowe/sta… — Vance Crowe (@VanceCrowe) April 1, 2013
