Internet & Networking It looks like several companies are learning what happens when you mess with the internet - and they're learning it the hard way. Several major companies have been hit by the collective powers of Anonymous after 4chan launched several distributed denial-of-service attacks. What many have been predicting for a long time now has finally happened: an actual war between the powers that be on one side, and the internet on the other. Update: PayPal has admitted their WikiLeaks snub came after pressure from the US government, and Datacell, which takes care of payments to Wikileaks, is threatening to sue MasterCard over Wikileaks' account suspension. Update II: Visa.com is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

Yes, because The New York Times is only about New York. Daring Fireball is only about fireballs with an attitude. Digg is about digging holes, and Slashdot is an interesting websites covering the use of slashes and dots all over the globe. The Washington Post is a newspaper for US Postal Service employees in Washington DC, and the Seattle PI is an industry magazine for private investigators working in the greater Seattle area. Time Magazine details the progress of time all over the world, and Escapist Magazine covers various means of escaping from around the globe.


What are you trying to say? ..I'm dense and need more examples! ;)
