Blogspot Blackout

That glitch in the Blogspot platform this week was interesting. After a day I started thinking Chinese DDoS, a la what happened to Wordpress a couple of months ago. However, searching turns up nothing and there was a little short in this morning's paper under the heading of "Site Wasn't Hacked: Google" which seems to refer to the same glitch as resulting from maintenance issues rather than a DDoS.
