I love web 2.0… anything can be down and if you put a funny message up it’s all good. Seriously, it’s a lot less pressure than the old days when you were absolutely embarrassed and terrified when you blog went down. You know why it’s not a big deal for all these Web 2.0 companies to go down? Answer: they don’t have advertising or subscription revenue. When you start making $25,000 or $100,000 a day on your website you start taking this stuff seriously.
You can be sure that now that MySpace has a $900M deal with Google they are gonna spend $100M on servers.
