Half the Internet Was Down Today

Major websites like Twitter, Paypal, Spotify, Reddit, and many more were down today. It looks like the cause of this was hackers unleashing a large denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It seems this DNS attach affected the United States and Europe mostly. While many people have reported that the sites are coming back up now, it seems there are more attacks happening.

Perfect Relationship Between a Man and the Internet

In spite of the obvious and undeniable progress of evolution, a man lives by his needs and instincts. If his requirements are met, a person is experiencing encouraging emotions and acquires some life energy. This is a natural response to a positive stimulus. Naturally, the needs are divided into inferior and superior ones. The internet is so firmly inserted into our lives that have eventually become a necessity, and often is listed as a superior one. On an equal basis with face-to-face communication, receiving information through reading books and newspapers, magazines, television viewing, staying online satisfies the human need for socialization. Thanks to the Internet and its wide spread people are now permanently free of the fear of loneliness. Internet is a source of positive emotions, and as a consequence, it provides us with life energy. This motivates a person to use the Internet further, again and again.

Think just in a short 20 years how much information is easily accessible on the Internet.

Slashdot Turns 15 this Month

Slashdot the "News for nerds, stuff that matters" social news site turns 15 this month. I have been using Slashdot for many years and it is one of the first real social news sites and site that posted tech / nerd news. For me the "News for nerds, stuff that matters" really hit a chord because it was the type of news I was looking for on the internet, not popular news or politics. Also the fact that the content was user-driven was really interesting to me. Being in the tech industry we see many sites come and go, but it is great to see Slashdot alive and well.
