My thoughts on the recent rick-roll blackout

I noticed on digg.com yesterday that the Rick Roll Video wasn’t viewable. This is a major staple of all the online pranksters, so news got out quickly about it. It’s of course back up now after such a huge revolt, but there’s a small thing missing now. Maybe it wasn’t there before and I never noticed it… you can’t embed the video into your site! You can now view it on youtube, but it can’t be added to say.. this blog.  Not sure if that was an intentional move or not… I find it a little odd though.

Also.. it looks like all the copies of the rick-roll video are all unlinkable as well. How odd.
