Daily Telegraph had it too today
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/11030725/How-an-arbitrary-number-broke-the-internet-yesterday.html

I'm not sure any engineer or programmer would call 512 an 'arbitrary' number.  :D

Interesting article though.

Its a shame in a way that the use of the word arbitrary IMHO undermined an article that was otherwise informative.
..  and this guy/author/journalist is supposed to be Deputy Head of Technology  ???
