Notable Comments

  • I kinda find this story refreshing... It's nice to know that as huge and important as Google is they can still make a bonehead mistake and just take the whole thing down. It's nice to know that... somebody can trip on the plug, a backhoe can take out rackspace.. it's kinda cool – Jason Calacanis (10:14)
  • Calacanis does impressions. mainly Christopher Walken and Jerry Seinfeld, throughout the show.
