Should we rename HN to 500 news?

And I starting noticing real people, real interactions, real friendships.

Deleted my account after Cambridge analytica story broke out. It was fun when it was about photography. It really boost my interest and made me experiment and move on to DSLR and mirrorless eventually etc. But with sponsored ads and less and less people interested in photography, I didn’t feel I was missing much.

Let's hope it stays that way.

...and it's back up, as of about 2:20PM EDT. Was definitely down for me with 5xx errors earlier, though, checking from Boston. Both web and mobile app were failing to load.

I can't help but think of that quote from The Social Network but in regard to Instagram being uttered by Zuckerberg: "Instagram must never go down!"

Ah, intern season.

It seems as though this website is not functioning itself . Every domain I checked says ”it’s down for us as well”.

I can at least confirm that I've been getting 503 errors on Instagram.

Yesterday it was Netflix, and today Instagram...

Is this the end of the world?

My sources tell me the Internet this week has been having a lot of technical issues.... and with no Net Neutrality in the U.S.A the big Telcos are probably "accidentally" cutting wires.

From my seat, it's certainly been an interesting two weeks putting out fires across the globe.
