30,000 customers in the San Francisco area lost power today at about 1:50pm PDT, in a series of power failures which knocked out a major datacenter hub: 365 Main. The hub controls servers for many social media sites, including Technorati
and all Six Apart
properties, including TypePad
. (6A's twitter stream
has updates.) More here
Amusingly enough, 365 Main tempted fate and released a press release today
patting themselves on the back for "two years of 100-percent uptime".

, the blogging software of choice (well, for a lot of us), have launched a new user-friendly service on their own servers, called TypePad
the press release). Is this a first direct hit at Blogger, a service they have denied gunning for, in light of Google's move? Will it work? My vote: Hell yes. MovableType have not put a foot wrong yet, and now they've got Anil Dash
