I’ll admit, I was never sold on the whole thing since it just boiled down to an interface and that is too easy to replicate. However, I was ready to be proven wrong. Well, the final judgments can’t be made, but Mashable points out:
“Usually when a popular Web service goes down, we get a flood of emails about it. For example, last month, when 37Signals, Blogger, and LinkedIn all suffered outages within the span of a couple days, we got pinged almost instantly by some of our readers.
That’s why today, when I saw a report from Royal Pingdom indicating that Joost has been suffering significant downtime this month, I was a bit surprised I hadn’t heard anything about it, from anyone.”
I’m betting Mashable’s experience isn’t unique. It’s the old, if a tree falls in the forest…
