Three disasters and smartphones
We’ve had two disasters this week. Or better, three. The prime is of course the immense catastrophe in Japan. Mother Nature must be mad. But that is a catastrophe nobody can do anything about. The second however is the disaster with the nuclear plant in Japan. That is a thing made by people. I reckon the melt-down (or near melt-down) could have been avoided and fires up the discussion on the issue. The third is of a more local proportion; three helicopter pilots of the Royal Dutch Navy who were taken hostile while trying to rescue a dutch guy from Libya a week and a half ago. Silly, silly, silly. So here I am with my motto: never trust a politician (except the one who also is a colleague at the faculty). Have a look at the news. You must agree that we are being lied at. The answer to the pack of lies is to get a smartphone as Ryan Kim elaborates in his GiGaOm article. It is worth reading here.
