I don’t know if the whole of WordPress.com was down, but this blog certainly was, and so was the main page of the site. It lasted for about 20 minutes, I think. We seem to be back now.
Update: Matt not only commented here right after the outage, but also posted to the WordPress.com blog, describing and explaining the outage, and describing the impressive and growing hardware powering WordPress.com.
