...The outage "was out of our and our data center partner’s control," a company spokesperson told HuffPost. "We worked closely with our partner to minimize the outage’s impact to our broader user base,” the spokesperson said. “We are monitoring the situation closely with our data center partner to address any other issues that may arise.”I urge anyone reading this, if they know of injuries that resulted, to contact me.  I will pass the information along to plaintiff trial lawyers.Practice Fusion attributed the outage to what experts are calling a rare Internet "brownout."

"I completely disagree that [open APIs aren't] an integral part of what we need to think about [to promote] interoperability," he said. "Right now, when we talk about interoperability, we're in the era of continuity -- to be able to move data from one point to the other.
