@realcaseyrollins @fgntfg arpanet was not actually designed to survive a nuclear war. That proposal was shot down before it was ever implemented.

fastly going down meant a bunch of the world wide web had trouble displaying things/running webapps, nothing about the outage affected network infrastructure.

@realcaseyrollins @fgntfg it’s accurate but it’s largely because we’ve been trained to use the internet in a way that creates single points of failure, and ipv4 address space exhaustion makes it harder to avoid doing that.

@realcaseyrollins @fgntfg to be fair to the internet: arpanet would have had exactly the same address space issues if they tried connecting 2 billion devices to it.
