shared hosting at #joyent http://joyent.com/ has really become a royal PITA lately, this is the 6th major downtime in 3 weeks, downtimes last between 7.5 and 30 hours, unfortunately I'm not kidding.
(shared hosting is in the process of being transitioned to TextDrive, but until then it is within their responsibility and an indicator of their quality, but they obviously no longer care. if anyone from joyent is listening, the server name is cardero, I've filed a ticket)

(like all other MOOCs they don't spend too much time and thought on the offboarding of students, which actually is a pretty stupid mistake)

Dear User, because of continual failure for a duration of 12 hours your test was suspended.
^ note from a monitoring service which complains about the fact that the site to be monitored for downtime is down for too long.

With regard to the issue of content, the disjunctive perturbation of the spatial relationships brings within the realm of discourse the distinctive formal juxtapositions.
for one, I am impressed. They have managed to get uptake, with a $50 pricetag, for an offering that is actually less functional than Twitter in many ways, from a technical standpoint. And it's a very small community relative to Twitter. Even so, they have managed to get a lot of people to part with a significant amount of money.
(weird article. I actually was looking forward for him to chime in since he probably is the conceptual center of gravitation for this topic, but then all he does is list possible types of twitter-users?)
update: it's getting worse and worse (beta-wise). Only 2 of the last 50 pitches have been for plain vanilla public betas. What's even more concerning (again, beta-wise) is that people, especially the younger folks, don't even get what I mean when I'm responding that I'm only listing public betas. Seems like nobody is reading Tim O'Reilly anymore or understands the symbolic significance of the perpetual beta tag.
another weird trend is people asking for a submit form. For the first six years or so nobody has been asking for a form, now 3 out of 10 do without even sending the link in the email.
(quite funny: the moaning about the upcoming twitter API is much louder in my G+ stream than on twitter)
I still don't get why anyone would ever think endless scrolling is a good idea. (but obviously a lot of people like it and/or don't get annoyed)
Again, none of this is to suggest that either model is 'the right' model. But it's flat out ridiculous to suggest that either one is somehow economically pure or has interests more aligned with users. What amazes me, however, is so many people are repeating Caldwell's assertions as if it's absolutely true, when it's clearly not.
