My phone has been ringing off the hook today from reporters looking for me to say something bad about the Amazon outage. Bluntly, it ain't going to happen. Amazon is a pioneer blazing a path in an unproven and emerging sector of technology. Amazon has embarked on an ambitious service few if any, have ever attempted before. Things undoubtedly can and will go wrong. The fact is I can count on one hand the amount of times Amazon has gone down over the last two and half years. The trouble with being first is your first.
My faith in Amazon is as strong now as it was when I first started working with them. Shit happens and I doubt anyone else could do any better. So cut them a break already.
