The Google Outage: A Message From the CEO


These things happen, but they still sting.


Editor's Note: Todd posts his vibes in real time each day on our Buzz & Banter.

One of our daily processes in Minyanville is to assimilate global markets and share those thoughts in real-time on the Buzz & Banter.

After I wrote my latest Buzz -- there's a lot going on -- I learned that Minyanville was having server issues.

Odd, I thought, because we switched from traditional servers to the Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Cloud because traffic surges would overload capacity.

Even stranger, I thought some more, that we "upgraded" to the Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Cloud to enhance our user experience.

Still, these things happen in a digital world; I used to freak out about it, but I've mellowed in my old age (or maybe it's the wife and kids).

As time passed, with Minyanville and the Buzz still down, I took to Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) to share some real-time random thoughts.

The good news -- for all of us, except perhaps Google engineers -- is that it's the weekend and time to unplug.

Make it count, and we'll see you on Monday.
