The Frailty of the Net

Dan Miller writes “Yesterday Global Center/Frontier managed to bring major sites like Yahoo and CNET Shopper to a screeching halt for almost four hours yesterday. My question is: How stable is the Net, really? With only a fraction of the world online, will the infrastructure be able to truly support mass use? “ This is an interesting question. I haven’t been able to find any articles about the outage, but I was certainly effected. While Techdirt.com itself was fine, I couldn’t access it for much of the day as my ISP routes through Global Center, and whatever rerouting they tried apparently wasn’t working.
