length 00:22:04

FB, twitter, South Korean, Aussie gov website <- SoS
pseudo sponsored political attacks.

Aussie gov D0S'd by group that does not like government decision to filter the Internet
- there was an IRC channel for 12hours
there was a count down, but the coordination fall apart
because they didnt know with time zone was used, even when they had a count down.
the after clearing the timing issue they could not agree on the target
they actually managed only to knock down 3 websites
they had created the tools, they had created a wiki, but all fall a part on the coordination.

the one that really works are the one under the radar & well organized - there were too many cooks in the kitchen.

OR there is a reason why people use bots <- no worries about coordination

They tried to know his FB, but FB didnt go down
Plus, spam his email.
