Hurricane Sandy roundup – Weekend must-read articles #35

hurricane sandy coverage

This is our collection of must-read articles for the weekend. This week we’re trying something a little bit different, with a roundup of Hurricane Sandy. There are news stories, analysis, updates by Internet- and other tech companies, and more.

Every week we bring you a collection of links to places on the web that we find particularly newsworthy, interesting, entertaining, and topical. We try to focus on some particular area or topic each week, but in general we will cover Internet, web development, networking, web performance, webops, security, and other geeky topics.
