Amazon Outage takes down Reddit, RTN, Foursquare and others

Post 192 of 378

Wow, I knew we were getting a lot of traffic on the RTN Community site but really guys, melting one of Amazon’s cloud computing centres…!

Normal service has been restored but our community site was affected along with Pinterest and even TMZ! For details here’s an article, it wasn’t me tinkering with the system and breaking it, honestly! (not this time anyway)
For a weekly roundup be sure and plug into our weekly webinar this evening at 7pm sharp, click here to register.
Last week was, well, crazy to say the least. The Okanagan opened up last weekend with almost a hundred in attendance and hosted their first regular weekly meetup on Friday.
Tuesday saw the day long SOHO SME Tradeshow:

“The day kicked off with a wildly successful Mother of all Meetups. RTN members could be spotted throughout the crowd making introductions and networking like pros. 

We had an extremely positive response at our booth at the SOHO tradeshow. 
It was a great opportunity to meet with business owners and connect them with RTN communities in their area as well as meet with members and provide ideas on how to use the marketing tools of the network. The RTN pavilion showed the power of leveraging our network – our members received a special rate to be able to exhibit at show.” Anne Whitmore.

Tip for the week – Get to the front of the line! Register & prepay on Meetup for our Wednesday meeting in East Vancouver and just pick up your name-tag at the door. Bring your receipt for quick entry. This is a great idea as the lineup will be down the street for this one.
