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

Submitted by

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. What bigger implications does this have for the net, web hosts, and sites with potentially objectionable user generated content?"

+ - Are Hackerspaces Going Viral? ->

Submitted by

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. I see them as nodes in an emerging global economic network that's run by free agents and small enterprises that embrace sharing, collaboration, inclusiveness, and sustainability as core values. 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."
