A friend in Michigan just wrote to say she noticed that The New York Times Web site is down. I just checked, and it’s down for me as well.
Below is a screen grab taken just moments ago. One can’t help but be reminded of an incident in 1998 when a band of hackers who called themselves “Hacking For Girlies” attacked the site, they said because they were bored and couldn’t agree on a video to watch. The crime has never been solved.
