After browsing around on Slashdot earlier and catching up on some of my tech feeds, I came across an article about a recent outtage at one of Google's Datacenters.
Apparently one of the datacenters which hosts Google's App Engine Cloud Computing platform lost power in late February. The downtime lasted a little over two hours. Google recently released an amazing postmortem on the situation.
It would be amazing to see something like this written for every major issue for all tech related companies.
