Technorati has now been down, on and off, for the past two days. Unbelievable.
I remember begging Google to buy Technorati almost a year ago because of ongoing technical issues … and this has not changed.
The service Technorati promises is so great – its actual delivery is so incredibly buggy.
What do they have to do to make it right?
. . .
. . .
What I don’t understand is that Technorati has a blog … which is almost never updated with information on what’s going on. It’s like they think nobody notices that they’re down.
The second-last post is from 23 or 24 days ago, and it’s about how nice people are to Technorati. Umm … whatever.
Besides the irony of a company that absolutely lives off the blogosphere only updating its own blog every month or so, why not tell us what’s going on? Why is the service down? What is the problem?
And why does David Sifry still have a job if he:
- can’t put a service together that works with reasonable (not perfect, but reasonable) consistency
- can’t tell the people who depend on his service what’s going on
It’s beyond me.[tags] technorati, bugs, downtime, john koetsier [/tags]
