It’s 3:30am in the morning. I’m up because I have sore muscles, am stiff and was tossing around in bed, trying to sleep with no success. Horror’s of horror’s I find Facebook is down. Now what will I do?
At least WordPress is still running. I still have some opportunity to find out what is happening in the world.
I am thinking of a scene from the Tom Hanks movie, Forest Gump. He becomes the running man and he just runs. He runs across America. He runs the length of America and in doing so creates a huge following. He then stops in mid stride. Turns, say’s I am tired. And walks home, leaving a stack of people in the middle of nowhere, not knowing what to do.
I wonder what would happen if the owners of Facebook, just jacked up one day and said –I’m tired, lets stop running and pulled the plug on it – just like that.
Would the world ever be the same?
