Blackout On The Web - Forbes.com

Go figure... 

When a single data center sneezes, the Internet gets a cold.

That's what several major Web sites learned Tuesday afternoon when a power outage in downtown San Francisco disabled 365 Main, a Web server company that hosts sites including Craigslist, Technorati, SixApart, Yelp, GameSpot, the homepage of Sun Microsystems (nyse: SUN - news - people ) and Red Envelope. The outage, which began at about 1:45 p.m. Pacific time, disabled the sites for more than an hour.
