There's been some blogosphere discussion in the last week about the best way to help bloggers survive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.  A couple of bloggers have proposed the concept of a Distributed Guarantee of Service (DGoS), and even started a project around DGoS over at SourceForge.net.  The premise:

The challenge is this: how could we establish a system so that a blogger suffering a DDOS attack (or simple system downtime, even) could be guaranteed a way to post during their outage.

The key part would be setting up a way for member blogs to 'host' a downed blogger's posts.
Interesting.  In our blogging world, DDoS hasn't really been a big issue.  But I can see where it is becoming moreso in the wider blogosphere.
