Some of you might have had trouble loading the blog this morning and early this afternoon, but it wasn’t anything more than a miscue at our vendor, TypePad. (In future, if the pages have trouble loading on your browser, you can check TypePad’s status.) Technically, the blog service is still "degraded," but it does seem to be working.

Anyway, let’s shoot down those conspiracy theories right now. This wasn’t some city council truth squad going after Wamre for his convention center posts, or aiming for me for any one of my various subversive thoughts. It was just TypePad. Honest.
