@crusom Fastly's CDN broke (not sure why) and a lot of very prominent sites, including news orgs, were down. Kinda ironic how resilience and avoiding single points of failure were goals of the original internet
@cypnk Citation needed 🙂
Resilience was certainly a goal of one of the studies which inspired the use of packet switching in the ARPANet (Paul Baran's work at the RAND Corp, not so for Donald Davies's work at NPL) but AFAIK it was never a explicit goal of the ARPANet itself or of the IP-based networks which replaced it. So it'd be interesting to see any contemporary documents which suggest resilience was actually a goal.
