Loyal readers may know we’ve had tech misery for the last 24 hours. Ed Wright, who among other things, once ran mission critical trading platforms for a major global bank does not take no for an answer and had us operational, albeit by migrating some of our recent content over.
Google came around only by virtue of a full court press (Felix Salmon and the Milken Institute were on their case) but it appears it was Michael Schrage, brother of Eliot Schrage, who broke the logjam.
It shouldn’t require that level of effort to get a screw-up resolved. The inability to get through Google’s switchboard (take my word, getting through bureaucracies is one of my long suits, but they had me bested) is, shall we put it, rather revealing.
Ed needs to undo what he did yesterday, but hopefully we will be back to normal later on Saturday. Thanks for your patience and continued support.
