I can't believe it! I'm a total news addict, and they've cut off my my flow of the good juice!
Google's had a lot of things going wrong lately. I wonder if they finally ran into a scaling problem, since they are way ahead of anybody now. Sooner or later there's a big cliff to fall over.
In all my studies and designs of computer systems, I have always been aware of scaling cliffs. It's so much easier if you are following someone who's been there. That's why, with these health care systems, I've always identified the scaling cliff, and they've always gone right over.
