Jaiku, the microblogging site that I send messages to along with a group of friends has been  down today, supposedly for 24 hours, but is now back up again.  Not a big deal you would think, but the whole point of it is that it is immediate, quick and part of an ongoing conversation.  I’ve tried to log on 3 times today having forgotten that I knew it was scheduled maintenance.  Hopefully, they will fix the various glitches that have arisen since their purchase by Google.  Come back – all is forgiven.  It’s miles better then Twitter.  And lo and behold, it is back – hello world.
