 FTFA: "The outage has raised questions about relying on a handful of companies to run the vast infrastructure that underpins the internet"

To paraphrase Churchill, it's the worst solution, except for all the others. Having to interface with hundreds of small companies who all try to do what these big companies have spent millions figuring out might lead to smaller outages, but many, many more of them that last longer.

The outage has raised questions about relying on a handful of companies to run the vast infrastructure that underpins the internet.

You dont say? Internet is supposed to be decentralized so that kind of crap doesnt happen.

A company admitted fault, apologized, and promised to release results of an investigation.  It's weird seeing a company act decently.

Boss: "Do you really need to work on that?"
Boss: "We can cut that part out and get back to it later."
Boss: "Do we really have to test that much?"
Boss: "Lets just get the bare minimum done and run the process manually (meaning you) while you finish the rest of the automation since we're in a hurry. (Introducing human error since this isn't the only project/job process on the plate demanding attention.)

Okay.

I now demand $5,000,000 on a DQ gift card or I open up control panel on my laptop and start messing with things.

Well, I'm glad to hear these Fastly people have built their stuff in such a way that it checks for stupid users and only breaks their piece of the Internet, instead of... oh.

In retrospect the "Don't not send all traffic to my server" option shouldn't have been included in the drop down list. For multiple reasons.
