The Shot Heard Around The Internet


As everyone knows, sometimes web sites go down. Twitter is notorious for having performance issues, hence the creation of the fail whale. Even our beloved SilentPartner had it's wrestling match with downtime. Some websites never go down, and if they do, you know something is seriously wrong. Today, one of those websites, Google.com, went down. Not just Google and related properties were effected, but any site that used a Google service. For example, a site that integrated Google map data, or Google analytics tags were also slowed to a snails pace. It became so pervasive that the internet was buzzing with "WTF GOOGLE?!?" sentiment. Apparently it was all due to traffic being mis-routed through Asia, which in turn caused a traffic jam on the information super highway. Next time you really screw something up, just remember, you are not alone.
