I’m noticing a growing number of blog-related services seem to be having problems. Geourl is down for renovations; Feedroll isn’t accepting new feed setups; Localfeeds says it “will return soon;” URL’LOG has been killed off by spammers. Technorati seems awfully slow, but maybe that’s just me.
I don’t know how many of these are hobbies that have become too popular, and have overwhelmed the Linux box under the desk. But the fact that these all are having trouble seems to be to be an early indicator of something significant.
