Cool Mashup

Down for everyone or just me? is a straightforward mashup that confirms whether or not a particular website is currently available. Here is a place to diagnose whether or not the inability to connect is limited to you.

Sometimes library customers at the public computer terminals ask if a particular site, such as Yahoo!, is down. Down for everyone or just me? is the ideal resource to check the customer’s site at the point of contact instead of walking back to the reference desk. This mashup may also be useful when assisting customers via telephone reference.

The website MashupAwards recently honored Down for everyone or just me? as a Mashup of the Day.
