Alert the media, Reddit is down. While it’s been a while since we’ve seen the last cogent outage, the site has currently been down for about an hour now. I’m sure there are more than a few people at work panicking right now and apprehensive how to fill their time after their accepted at-work distraction.


According to @redditstatus, the site appears to be down after the site “had a slight issue with a accepted software upgrade.” It seems they’re alive out the kinks — while Redditors are alive out theirs — and the site should be back soon.

Update: It’s back. That was a close call. I almost went outside.
