Hopefully this is an appropriate forum for this.

As someone who does his fair share of Ebola fear mongering, I'll admit we're probably going to be fine. It is definitely scary but only time will tell whether this is going to be a real global pandemic.

Either way this info graphic shows the mentions of Ebola on Twitter in the last week or two. The explosion of tweets following the announcement of its arrival in America is just monstrous.

The new social technology is letting us see the collective consciousness in real time. I find this absolutely fascinating.

Global gossip. BFD.
We also now have global village drunks and global village idiots. Big improvement from the olden days, huh?

A Norwegian woman has been confirmed with Ebola some days ago and was brought home to Oslo, arrived today, and they only have a few blips. We in Denmark had our first "scare" the other day when a hospital was on lockdown for a few hours because of a suspected Ebola case, there are two blips it seems.

No fear mongering in Scandinavia, i like it, although the media is trying hard...

I do find it completely idiotic in case of the norwegian woman though...

With out being to funny guys but are you for real,
This virus is 90% toxic its gonna kill you stone dead and its migrating globally fast.
One infected person gets on the underground tube and infects 200 people with one sneeze,
Them 200 get on another tube ect ect,
Thats after sitting in their air conditioned offices all day infecting the rest off thier colleagues.

It started off with a small out break in Africa and now 3000 people are dead (disclosed)
You think The US Army sent a %00 strong team for Humanitarian reasons,
Think Corp off Engineer's with Flame throwers and Pits burning.
Cmon ATS you swallowed the blue pill on this rubbish media censoring.

A BIg Fat blue pill of denial. By the handful.

We have to believe in rubbish. Its the only chance we got.

Loved your scenario for vectors. We are all connected by our conveyences. If just one host exhibiting symptoms gets in the underground and wipes his sweaty, snotty hand on a rail on the way to the hospital…

Well there's a surprise-The most tweets(outside Africa) are in all the areas the Murdoch Media Mind Control Mafia are most prevalent...
Who'd have thought it possible?

Aside from the volume, it's interesting to see where tweets aren't being sent. Has "tweeting" (which, btw, I've never done) not caught on in Australia? Japan has very few, upper Canada, and look across Russia and China and Southeast Asia. I didn't know tweeting wasn't world-wide, learning something new every nanosecond.

I honestly think twitter is a US contrivance. I have been suspicious ever since I observed how many politicians were using it before it was even considered cool. Then again, I've never used it so I'm biased

US Millatary spends on social media

The fake Cuban Twitter scheme

Yes fascinating. Scary more so. I recall when I first came across statistical analysis. How human behavior could be predicted by knowing how to understand statistics and even though we as individuals could swear that we were beyond or apart from the statistic, we really aren't.

Controlling the masses became easier when the ability to analysis people in this way became prevalent. Now this kind of technology can give up to date, almost real time evaluation of peoples wants and desires, and fears, on a massive scale.

For those who want to control, this kind of info on marketing can be used to catch popular trends at their roots and guide sales promotions with only days if not hours preparation. Specialized commercials as well as entire programs can be sitting in the can just waiting for a fad or trend to ignite and whalla, there it is on the tube or the internet. Bingo.

Beyond commercialism and the numbing down of the consumer, there is the reality that information like this will be able to control social movement and inclinations, target voting potentials and the like, shuttling the cattle up or down a chute as the controllers see fit.

While statistics may be used to predict and analyze behavior or result on a massive scale, the only aspect of it which contains covers all bases is the historical aspect.

The projections are where statistics cannot provide meaningful significance but its use unfortunately results in failing nuclear plants, drug reactions and countless car accidents and food recalls.

Statistics is not a science, but a faith.

Statistics don't define you, you define them.
And statisticians can only attempt to anticipate and quantify every move, change and variable that's affected.
