Check the history of "hiccups" and you won't likely find similar inaccessibility on a global scale. Ninety percent of my bookmarked websites, the server couldn't be located.
This just in: It appears much of the www is inaccessible at this time. 5:45am PST
6:15am, www back in full, as best I can tell. Did anyone else experience similar inaccessibility?
Apparently it wasn't just a local problem. The below graphs are from Internet Traffic Report. Note the corresponding peak in Global Packet Loss and troughs in Global Response Time and Global Traffic Index.

Update. Looking at the 30-day graphs it appears it was much ado about nothing. On the other hand, during the 30 minutes there was an initial "onslaught" of inaccessible website. The few that I could access, there was degradation as some became inaccessible over time. With the few websites that were accessible, due to diversity -- some have a broad-range audience, others are niche websites -- it didn't seem likely they were cached on my ISP's servers.
Typical to my web-surfing experience, inaccessibility was limited to one website. Or, no websites were accessible. The former, likely a glitch at the lone website or its host/ISP. The later, most likely a glitch at my ISP.
