Where the Sidewalk Ends: The Death of the Internet

  • The site is having difficulties because our bandwidth is totally overextended. Our 1Gbps line is at 100% even when there aren't 8000 people on the site. We were supposed to get a second Gbps line months ago but I'm struggling to get technicians scheduled to set it up.

I wrote this a few months ago. I'm now a ZH contributor so I've published it. I have a subsequent article coming up this weekend or next week. The below is privated because copy+pasting articles is something Google gets upset about.

Now that I think of it, how does ZH’s contributor system work? Do you get any benefits from being a contributor or do they just republish your stuff because they like it?
As far as I'm aware it's content aggregation from people who want to boost their content. I'm mostly interested in informing people about Section 230, payment networks, and how fragile this shit is.
