Lost packets, and a new Internet Bubble?

So, I’m catching up with various RSS feeds, trying to stay on top of things. There is so much information out there, it’s easy to miss important or interesting stuff. For example, I hadn’t realized that Level3 and Cogent had decoupled their peering arrangement this week. I read in a separate article in the Wall St. Journal that the impacts on average users are noticable…for example, Time Warner gets its IP service from Level3, and this meant that there was roughly 15-17% of the internet that was inaccessible to RoadRunner subscribers. Not good :-(. I found this really good article about the nascent hype about Web 2.0, in this article from the Register, Bubble 2.0. Incidently, this also mentions the Level3/Cogent issue.
