Blogging By Candlelight

Apparently the power is out in New York city and much of the rest of the north eastern United States and parts of Canada. I hoped to see some local bloggers remarking on the strangeness but then I remembered… all their computers are out. Not to mention many of their ISPs and routers I would imagine. Weird, wild stuff.

Elsewhere: BoingBoing, MetaFilter, CamWorld, Fireland, Kottke, Grant Barrett, Paul Ford, Amy Langfield, Gothamist, Mark Shewmaker, Rachelle Bowden, Zeldman.

Reuters: “New York Major Michael Bloomberg said it was likely a natural occurrence.” Translation: This is part of our regularly scheduled “scare the shit out of everyone” program. Please resist the urge to loot for as long as possible.

Moblogs rise to the occasion and fill the void.
