Clearly it hasn’t been as long for everyone.

As Twitter‘s Chief Architect, Blaine Cook caught the brunt of the Twitter community’s frustrations over the micro-blogging service’s frequent downtime. He left the company earlier this year and has now joined Yahoo! to work on a service called FireEagle, apparently similar to Twitter but focussed on user-location.
