It is indeed a month old, and was linked (at least) from here (scroll down to the update at 1:50 pm). I can't tell whether it was linked by Andrew (my guess would be yes), because it seems I can only go back 19 or 20 pages, to around June 24, before getting an error from the server. I'm not quite certain why I was determined to find it, given all the other things I would still like to accomplish today. I suppose the biggest factor was simply the importance of accurate reporting - I find it incredibly frustrating that I have yet to see any truly credible crowd estimates, for any of these demonstrations, and it seems the best we can do is at least try to make sure we're looking at the right videos.
