Revision3 hiccups, Veronica Belmont Twitters

Revision3 suffers temporary outage, prompting Veronica Belmont twitter and Valleywag report.

Web TV network Revision3 had a temporary outage on Tuesday, the company said.

The news was originally reported on Twitter by none other than Gen X Web 2.0 personality and former CNET producer Veronica Belmont, who was recently hired to work on Revision3's Tekzilla program. "Holy DDOS attacks, Batman! Rev3 is under fire!" she wrote.

All I could get out of a Revision3 representative was this statement: "The Revision3 Web site experienced a disruption in service earlier today, but it has been addressed."

But Valleywag reports that Revision3 co-founder David Prager attributed the outage to a possible distributed denial-of-service attack.

Now who would want to attack Revision3?
