New York power outage claims Gawker, HuffPo, Mediaite, BuzzFeed websites

A power outage at a downtown New York data center on Monday took several popular websites offline, including the entire Gawker network of sites as well as Mediaite and the Huffington Post.

Gawker is temporarily down because the 57th Street Crane just flooded our servers with sea foam, or something. Back with you shortly.

Celebs are welcome to go crazy in real life but are asked to stay indoors and keep tweeting; Twitchy is up and running and going strong.

BuzzFeed and Gawker are down. You may experience an unfamiliar emotional reaction to events. This is known as earnestness and should pass.
