  1. Herschel: yeah, blogging is so 2001. :-)

    I do wish I could permalink to a selection of FriendFeed items/conversation clusters. Agreed that’s a bad thing about it.

  3. Maybe that’s the problem with Friendfeed. If you don’t get into the conversation early you miss the background and it all looks loosy-goosy.

    With a well written blog post a reader can better grasp what is going on.

    Don’t pitty us old-school blog lovers. Damn, old school is what now about six years?

  5. I think they should start announcing the times when they actually will be up so that we can be ready. Even if it is one day per week-which seems to be what’s going on nowadays.

    You know, like when you only have one phone in the whole village, you take turns talking.

  7. What I don’t understand about Twitter is that there are lots of people that can help with scaling. TONS of people. What is it about the service that is so unreliable? Is it money? Talent? The code?

  9. the link to friendfeed is absolutely worthless. I have no idea what this blog post is about at all as after following the worthless friendfeed link I didn’t want to waste anytime with the Gilmore gang link so instead I posted this negative comment – sorry.

  11. So BusinessWeek is the reason that Twitter went down? Thank god, I already feared that there has been another earthquake somewhere.

  13. I think they probably took a conscious ideological decision not to sweat on downtime as they need to give us users a break from time to time to stop us all turning into dribbling zombies. On the other hand perhaps they just keep breaking it, which isn’t hard on a system like that, especially as they made the mind-numbing decision to write a potentially database intensive app in Rails… DOH!
