Level 3* has partitioned its part of the Internet from Cogent's part of the Internet by denying Level 3's  
customers access to Cogent's customers and denying Cogent's customers access to Level 3 customers. Level 3  
terminated its peering with Cogent without cause (as permitted under its peering agreement with Cogent)  
even though both Cogent and Level 3 remained in full compliance with the previously existing interconnection  
agreement.  
 
This means a whole host of issues for a lot of people.

Unlike any you have ever seen. A true 'minimalist' design, in that it opens only enough for you to get through. As is evident in the video, it still needs some work, but the idea is cool!
Another bright idea from the API genius. I couldn't get it to fully load, but it gives you a good idea of where they are.
