People’s lives are interrupted due to Website instability

Some people have begun to depend on websites like Facebook and MySpace, or YouTube or Skype. There are a lot of people that spend more time watching video’s and listening to music in online chat and blogs. There are more and more of these service’s and more weight on the servers. What happens when YouTube stops working, or Clipmarks hasn’t updated in 4 days. Twitter has been utterly crushed because of problems with updates and losing data.
There are more and more companies that are beginning to combine services on the same server setup. So when those servers go down, ALL of the services go down.

Hey, Is This Site Down? The Toll of the Shaky Web
Companies like Google want us to store not just e-mail online but spreadsheets, photo albums, sales data and nearly every other piece of personal and professional information. That cloud-stored data is supposed to be more accessible and reliable than information tucked away in the office computer. Or at least, that’s the idea.

Why do I need to know HTML to comment on a Web Site?

WordPress has shown how powerful a website can be as far as using a text editor online. Some websites make you have to know html codes like *</p>* or other HTML commands just to post to a topic on the website or to make a comment about a website that shows up in a site like Facebook or Myspace. If you don’t know HTML, your sentences get mixed into one paragraph because you didn’t use the paragraph command or the website that you want to share with someone does not show up as a clickable link when veiwed on other websites unless you use http:// and know the excact web address. http://www.mac.com shows up as text instead of a link like this mac.com.

These functions are availble in WordPress and are even included as add-ons to websites. Why do I have to download a certain application or add-on for this functionality? If a small developer can write application for Facebook called “Advance Wall”, why can IE or Safari have this
