The Internet returns to its roots

...as a disaster-proof method of communications (see Wikipedia). The New Orleans Times-Picayune hasn't been able to put out a print edition for the past number of days, for obvious reasons. Instead, in a show of resilient spirit they've moved to Internet-only in order to continue reporting on their beloved city. (See here, too)

It's not much use to people in the disaster area itself, left without electricity and communications, but it's still some small sign of hope for the future.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.

    (This blog and its contents reflect only my own personal opinions as a private citizen, and not those of any other person or organisation.)
