The Paradox of success

It is believed that Yogi Berra once said about a restaurant: "Nobody goes there anymore, it is too crowded!"
This is what is happening to new technologies in pedagogy, people are becoming fed-up with the down times and other issues with websites providing services to academia. There are also issues with the inter-communication between servers. One case in particular is making me go mad. As our provider's firewall is keeping our students to access "bad" sites it is also impeding them to have access to textbook's websites that use a lot "handshakes". I guess this is just normal with the rapidly changing world of technology and as it has always been we will just get used to it in the same way we now use old technologies like electricity.
