Heckuva job! CPAC website leaves many frustrated: ‘Total lag fest’

For a conference that hosted a “Current Trends in Tech” panel Thursday, CPAC hasn’t quite caught up with the cutting edge trend of having a website that actually functions when it’s needed. Want to check out the CPAC site to see what speeches and panels are worthwhile? Good luck with that. Access has been unreliable since Wednesday.

The ACU website appears to be down on the eve of CPAC

@skiplacombe good question. not sure. i’d tell you to go to their website, but it’s crashed so many times…

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) March 14, 2013

@floridajayhawk is that a yes? I can’t get CPAC website to work either. I’m sure they will be on YouTube at some point today.

A CPAC spokesman “assumes” it’s a “volume issue.”

CPAC spokesperson says they’re working on getting the site back up. “Assume it’s a volume issue.”

One Twitter user suggested using the app instead.

Use the app! RT @davidhauptmann: Definitely slow today. RT @woodruffbets: Sooo, is the CPAC website down or what?

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) March 14, 2013

But the CPAC app has its problems too:

Seriously, did anyone test the #CPAC2013 app before the event? Seems completely useless. Crashes every time I search for anything. #Fail

— Fred M (@fredontwittur) March 14, 2013

So the #CPAC2013 app looks great, except that I can’t get it to work at all. What gives?

— Breeanne Howe (@breeannehowe) March 14, 2013

@cpacnews What’s the deal with the #CPAC2013 App schedule? It seems out if date?Shouldn’t it be updated in real time? #Tech

— W Patrick Wilson (@DUhockeyFan) March 14, 2013

So the up-to-date #CPAC app has nothing about Trump on the agenda. Did he pull out? Was he canceled? #fingerscrossed

And on the social media front, another sign that CPAC organizers just don’t get it:

I’m nitpicking I know, but why kill 2 of our 140 characters? Shld be #CPAC13. RT @nathanmartin: @benhowe CPAC app is using #CPAC2013

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) March 12, 2013
