The very brilliant Rod Page (of whom I've blogged previously) has made a very cool time/map visualization mashup showing confirmed and suspected cases. The application uses the RSS feeds from the original 2009 Swine Flu Outbreak Map.

Bill St.Arnaud made the simple point today (in addition to a number of other interesting and important points) at the ISACC (ICT Standards Advisory Council of Canada) meeting with respect to ICT and global change (which generalizes to all other industries and activities):
Energy isn't the issue: carbon is the issue.I will be speaking this afternoon with the talk: "World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Standards for Industry and Governments".
If you have an energy expensive process, but all the energy comes from wind,
solar, hydro (carbon neutral), that is OK.
And energy efficiency doesn't really get you anywhere.
