Glenn Greenwald Appears To Have Moved...

... to The Intercept, along with a dozen other stellar lights. Nothing fancy there, just a much-needed group of genuine reporters. See blogroll.

    1. Enfant, that's odd... the site works just fine from here. Try again.

    2. Enfant, I notice the default protocol for this site is https, not http. Is it possible that either your internet provider or your beloved government blocks secure access to all sites, or perhaps only to foreign sites?

      When I tried removing the "s" from the protocol, the site promptly replaced it, so the Intercept people are fairly determined to be viewed only through a secure connection. BadTux or Bryan, are you out there? can you offer any insight?

  2. They are load balancing at launch of the site. They are getting hammered with a lot of traffic, so the server dumps people with a 503 error. It happened to me when I tried to go directly to your link, but I got through to the First Look home page and went from there to the The Intercept. Google does this all the time on Blogger, hands out 503 errors to kill a connection while they muck about with something.

    The problem will go away soon.

    I haven't had a problem since then, so they have apparently fixed a bug, or the volume went down to manageable levels.
