Stewart's Sanity Rally Biggest Foursquare Event Ever

Jon Stewart's Rally for Sanity generated the most check-ins in Foursquare's short history, the company confirmed with me today.

On the other hand, cell phone service was truly abysmal that day, so imagine how many people might have checked in if they'd been able to get their phones to work.
