Best “Server Down” Message Ever. Kudos to Grooveshark!

I was just surfing to Gooveshark to listen to a crazy song* stuck in an infinite loop in my head. If you don’t know what Grooveshark is, it’s one of my favorite websites to listen to on-demand music online.

Today, I got their server-down message. But, it’s not your regular “server is down” message, thus this post!

I found this hilarious and just had to share it. I guess the fact that I felt the need to share it, makes it social-media related. Seth Godin’s definition of the word “remarkable” pops to mind.

Makes you wonder: if something as simple as a “server down” message can be made in a way that is as note worthy and remarkable, why are people struggling with understanding what “social media” is all about.

* P.S: If you want to know the name of the crazy song stuck in my head, it’s Jogi by Punjabi MC. Don’t judge me! :P

Ford upsets bloggers more; no sign of an apology in the horizon!

One of the things that upsets me the most in life is when someone makes a mistake then ignores it completely – like nothing’s happened – instead of standing up and take responsibility for his actions. While individuals may – sometimes – get away with it, I don’t think that companies, especially big ones like […]

Dear Top Influencers: Don’t Recycle, Innovate!
