As Tim Coates put it on the Good Library Blog, we suffered a biscuit attack over the weekend. This is the second time our LoveUsHateUS.com, an interactive website about global perspectives on the United States, has been hacked, bringing down our other sites and blogs, too. Thanks to Trevor for sorting this out, and of course we are in the process of improving our site security.
Our work on global perspectives has angered people in the United States and now abroad, too. But the fact is that it is, for Americans and people around the world, a sincere and important effort to build understanding. We need the support of everyone who wants to build a more peaceful and fair world, no matter what party they belong to, what religion they practice, or what country they live in.
By the way, the hackers took down 20 of our sites!! Not an insignificant attack, especially considering what a small company we are, and how much else is on our IT plate.
