LinkedIn off the air?

The problem with growth is to keep up with peak demand without going off the air. LinkedIn, which has recently been making noises about an IPO, seems to have been 'off the air' this morning for five to ten minutes.


Since I help manage a few groups there, I was there to check requests, messages and such; so i guess I'll have to go back later.

Mark Bennett, who co-founded New Idea Engineering with me 15 or so years back, calls LinkedIn the 'grown-up' Facebook'; I had to smile when i consider the massive increase in universal angst if Facebook were to disappear for a few minutes. OMG! NO!

Now the question is this: do you have systems in place to monitor that status of your enterprise search platform, so you are sure it's up and running and returning accurate results?

Fear not: LinkedIn is back again. And with the right plan, your search would be too.
