Submission + - DreamHost System-wide Outage: DDoS on single site->

capnal writes: "DreamHost suffered an outage multiple times over a period of hours last night. A DDoS attack on a single website, 4chon.net, hosted on Dreamhost's servers was the cause according to updates and comments on the DH status page. 4chon is now moving hosts (after being refunded their hosting costs) and the attackers have won.

Submission + - Are Hackerspaces Going Viral? ->

Shareable writes: "Seems that hackerspaces are following a similar trajectory as coworking spaces, up and to the right fast. Both are crucibles where work and our economy are being reinvented.

They're also one of the few places where the values and practices of net culture are lived out in the real world day in and day out."
