The popular ‘read later’ platform Pocket has been down for
15 20 hours after what its engineers say was a “syncing error” occurred during an upgrade of the site’s code.
Thanks for your support! It saddens us deeply that Pocket is down. We're sharing information about the outage here: http://t.co/qJKxtOCeb9

Ever been to a tech festival?
TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.
The company’s official statement was: “This afternoon, we were deploying new code to the site. During this process a syncing error occurred, which required us to re-run our syncing process from earlier in the day. This took a significantly longer time than we expected.”

My favorite "read later" plugin / app @Pocket down for 14h or so now. Hope for their own sake access is restored soon – must be pretty bad…

@Pocket How long will you be down? All of the work I need to do today is stored in Pocket, and you've been down since yesterday :(

And they are starting to freak out…
Ugh, @Pocket is down, so now I have to read books on my travels like some sort of pre-internet Philistine. What is this junk?

@pocket is down … open in new tab, open in new tab, open in new tab, open in new tab, open in new tab, open in new tab, open in new tab…

Here’s to hoping it’s back up and running in time for the Friday afternoon tab dump…
Pocket being down is ruining my life
