Scaling up

“So,” our CEO asked me, “what happens if our new service becomes a huge success?”

aphyr: I think basically we can *expect* the service to collapse in unpredictable ways
mark: that would not be good
aphyr: No this is good!
aphyr: It means we averted all the ways it would predictably collapse!
mark: thanks kyle, i'll sleep well over the weekend now :-)

Today I realized that this project has basically been to build a service on par with Twitter or Yammer. The difference is they employ about 15 or 20 people to do my job! This… should be interesting!
