Some thoughts on gov’t resources during the east coast earthquake.
1) Website – how key is it to have your website up in a situation like this – like usgs.gov? You need Akamai (or type product) so you can scale your hosting when your servers get crushed. Some problems w/ usgs.gov being slow but seems generally working
2) Twitter – just exploded – key to have resources trained to respond to information. So many questions and answers occuring on Twitter versus official channels.
3) Mobile – everyone outside evacuating on mobile devices. That’s where people getting content. For most of us, we couldn’t get text or phone calls but Internet was working
What other tools are needed?
