Gawker, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post experience Sandy downtime after power knockout

As others have quipped, if you're a celebrity, now is the time to do something stupid. Hurricane Sandy has achieved what Anonymous could not: the ultimate pop culture publishing blackout trifecta. . From tweets by those affected, looks like the culprit was a Sandy-caused power outage in Lower Manhattan, where Buzzfeed, HuffPo, and the Gawker network of sites all have data centers.

Backup power is on the way. Kids, the internet isn't dead, this is just what it looked like in 2003! For a brief moment, Boing Boing is the only place to dick around online.
