I'm no techie, but if "major websites" are down then perhaps the problem isn't with the tech but with the fact that there's such a thing as a "major website"
There's no reason we all have to visit the same ten websites as each other every day, support the little guys
I like the way this place works, where there are lots of little sites and you can choose the ones you interact with, but they're all interlinked on a network, you know, like a kind of inter... net...?
@ak Isn't it just one host down? If I'm understanding this--and I just had coffee--it's an Amazon Web Services outage, so it's taking down a lot of sites that Amazon hosts.
@drifa The problem is that when there is a major outage everyone goes "oh isn't it terrible how there are like two companies that host 98% of the internet" but then when it comes back up and the opium of social media returns everyone just goes back to drooling on their keyboard and forgets about it
