Just to emphasize points above, don't expect to make any money. These are the visitors that are probably the least likely to click on ads. Also, you can easily get through it if you shut down any parts of the page that are dynamic. Frankly, it's cool for "cred" but the increased load on your server will probably just make it harder for your regular user type and you'll probably make less money that day than you would otherwise. It's funny, that there's little speak of the "NYTimes Effect" or the "Today Show Effect," getting good mentions in those will get you 10 times the visitors of slashdot (not a scientific assumption there...) and those visitors will actually convert!
