Wow. If a site as big and excellent and competent as nytimes.com can glitch out, smaller sites like this one have even more to worry about. One of the great things about the Internet is that smaller organizations like ours get to tell our stories to you. As site administrator, I don’t take that for granted.

On the other hand, we were up today when the New York Times site was down. So were NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and every other news source I checked. It made me feel good that if part of the Internet were attacked or blacked out, there would be many other news sources available.
