Nerd News: Internet Hubs & Hurricane Sandy

For those wondering why problems in New York affect Teamliquid and other net based services, this is interesting http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9233080/Storm_forces_Internet_hubs_to_run_on_generator_power

The article linked above is about what they call "carrier hotels," more formally known as Colocation Center (coloc for short), see Wikipedia for more information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colocation_centre

Short version is those two Colocation Centers are a major node from Transatlantic internet traffic, right now both of them are running on their generators.
