Everyone Get Back To Work: Google Calendar Is Back, Or Will Be Soon

As a reminder of how much everyone has come to depend on a free (or work-supplied, if your workplace uses Google accounts) online service, today civilization may yet still collapse due to a morning outage of Google Calendar. There were no widespread reports of people wandering streets or office hallways with no idea of where they were supposed to be, but that may be because the outage only lasted a few hours.

As usual when a service other than Twitter is down, people took to Twitter to vent about the situation. Or celebrate. One of those things.

Google, however, ruined the Internet’s fun by being competent and fixing the problem.
