People inside Thailand are chatting, reporting, debating and collating right now. Go see.

A brand new purpose-built weblog (via) reports that a popular local political discussion site has closed down due to ‘over crowded news and argument’, so – on this basis alone – it’s probably worth saving a page or two, just in case mirrors are required (i.e. even if the tubes aren’t cut, they’re going to get very clogged very soon).

UPDATE – Global Voices has more (including reports of activity on Flickr & YouTube) and confirms that local… interwebs….. connections…… are……. getting…….. very…………. slwoaffhdcvbcbx*

UPDATE – True geeks may wish to watch the relevant Wikipedia entry expand.

UPDATE – If this happens in your neck of the woods, who’s your overseas blog-buddy? Who do you direct people to if your website is down and/or who can you call if your corner of Teh Interwebs web goes down and you want something published?

This would be more of a standard/movement than a service, as a simple full-time-basic-button-that-links-to-options should do it. This data would be preserved in a variety of caches, and therefore accessible even if a major search engine took a tumble.
