The Pingdom website has been included as one of the examples in The Web Designer’s Idea Book. It is, as the name implies, a guide to themes, trends and styles in website design and was written by Patrick McNeil who also runs the very popular Design Meltdown web design portal. We have a copy of the book and can definitely say that it’s a really cool book, shock full with website inspiration.
Patrick chose to feature the 404 error campaign that we ran last year. If you are new here, or missed it when it happened, here is a video of what it looked like and how it behaved.
This isn’t the first time Pingdom has been featured in a book. Pingdom’s uptime monitoring service was discussed in the book Google Apps Hacks (published by O’Reilly), written by Philipp Lenssen, the man behind Google Blogoscoped.
