Everything's Connected

Heavens. people start blowing up London transport, and the whole country falls apart. Ripple effect - the telephone network, news sites (BBC is unreachable right now), workplaces - all come to a standstill because everyone acts the same in these situations, and pretty much no system can deal with that. Fallout in the next 24 hours. Tinfoil hat time.

During 9/11 the only news sources working were BBC News and the Guardian - suspect it'll be the same today

I also find Flickr interesting at times like these. Dunno if they're just gathered from news sources (quite probably), but have a look at Antarctic Lemur's feed maybe, including this one of the double decker bus involved.
