Blogger suffered serious issues yesterday. It was down for almost a day and some users, like me, had problems with their accounts information. My full name was published and some of my readers couldn't leave comments with their Google profile. Besides recent posts AND comments have been temporarily deleted.
a. We learned a lesson! Internet services can be very unstable so from now on we should make a back up copy of our precious texts.
b. It helped to realize how great Blogger has been till now, being a free service and all.
c. Even international and respected companies like Google can fail. That makes everything more human and down to earth.
d. Now you have a great story to tell to your grandchildren. "Well, kids, it was on May 2011, when Google The Company That Now In The Future Rules The World and Has Its Own Army...failed". Kids gasp.
e. You had a few hours in which you could not post and not feel guilty about it.
What do you think?
