    The Internet is broken...

    If you're wondering why any of your favourite sites are down, well it looks like Amazon has broken the Internet.

    Many of the world's biggest websites have stopped working because of a problem at Amazon.
    Amazon Web Services (AWS), the division of the retail giant that provides the infrastructure for much of the internet, appears to have broken. That means that all of the companies and websites that rely on its services many of the world's biggest websites, like Imgur and Medium, as well as professional tools like SoundCloud and Trello have stopped working at the same time.

    Don't mention the lizards dammit, they could be listening!

    Personally I'm more worried about the attempts by the big US telco's to stifle freedom of speech and monetise the net.

    Theyll use all the hacking attacks and the existence of darknet to use as an excuse to take control of the internet then theyll start on making it a two tier system -those who can pay and those who cant.

    The real danger is Trump and the Republicans are very much against a free unregulated internet so I cant see it staying as it is for much longer.

    The internet could end tomorrow and I'd see it as a blessing, my friends would visit me instead of just looking on Facebook, I'd get phone calls

    If only that would happen, i miss the 90s, before all the social media. There was a lot more face to face communication instead of just staring at screens. I got fed up with fb and deleted my account permanently, been without it 6months now. Seeing people more as a result.

    Go rhythm! I flatly refuse to get involved in the facebook thing. I've ditched my smart phone for a regular make calls, send texts phone and do not ever read twitter or look at pictures on whatever you call that site where it appears to be extremely important that your snaps of this mornings breakfast are available to all and sundry.
    I go absolutely mental at peeps that tell me I should know something because it is "all over facebook". Watch my lips cunts "I DO NOT DO FACEBOOK" as well you all know.

    I deleted my FB account about 4 years ago, I got bored with people putting photos of where they went and who with all the time.

    Well freedom of speech should apply to everyone. Someone who speaks out against the norm seldom has freedom of speech.

    Really annoys me when folk say that, it also irritates me that some people will only communicate through fb. I got fed up of all the drama and bullshit on there. When it first came out it was a useful tool, now it just seems to be full of peoples narcissism. I also have no twitter either as i see no point. I like ukhippy, always interesting things going on here.

    I have had the same thing, but the way i see it is that those who fail to keep in touch might not be genuine friends.
