The Internet Patched Back Together With Duct Tape... For Now

Following three days of angry rhetoric between Level 3 and Cogent over whose fault it was that lots of people couldn't reach half of the internet the two sides have come to a temporary agreement to patch the internet back together. However, if they can't work out their differences in a month, the internet will be splintered again. Of course, you can expect that some time in the next month some politicians will pick up on this and start talking about regulations to keep the internet together.
