lots of cool stuff today. first off is an interesting article about how the entire internet can be knocked offline but a targeted ddos attack. you would just need to target border gateway protocol (BGP), with a ddos and theoretically take out the net. read the article here: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20113-the-cyberweapon-that-could-take-down-the-internet.html
