Life Without Google

At the moment, Google has gone dark.

Google Reader isn’t responding.  Nor is Gmail.  Or Google News.  Nor Google Search.  Or Google Calendar.

Life as we know it has pretty much ground to a stop.

UPDATE:  The Googleverse has been restored.  I estimate the outage at 20 minutes.

    Works OK now, so it didn’t last too long, but damn you scared me.

  2. Hmmm, never even noticed it and I’ve been on Google Reader since 4:30

    You’re fine if you don’t close, I think, since it doesn’t auto-refresh unless you leave the frame and go back to the top.

    I blame Obama.
