+"All Systems Operational!" is the kind of thing everyone loves to see and hear.
+Unfortunately failure is always lurking around the corner. During our outages in
+the past, we lacked a public facing way to inform our users and customers about
+potential issues on the platform, both for open source and private projects.
+
+In short, we lacked a status page. We're sorry for holding off on shipping one
+for so long, but the good news is, we finally have one in place.
+
+If you hop over to <http://status.travis-ci.com> you'll be greeted by our
+friendly mascot and the current state of all relevant parts of Travis CI,
+together with the latest incidents and their resolutions.

+
+The status updates are also connected to our Twitter account, so any incidents
+will be posted there as well. We'll publish notifications for both platforms
+there to avoid the confusion of having two status pages for each separately.
+
+The status page also supports updates notifications via email, so you can sign
+up to be notified via email when an issue comes up. Note that you'll get
+notifications for both platforms, which may or may not be relevant to you
+depending on which ones you're using.
+
+We're using a hosted service for this service, courtesy of the fine folks at
+<http://statuspage.io>. They just yesterday shipped an initial version of their
+API, so we already started implementing support for hubot so we can update the
+site's status from the comfort of our Campfire room.
