Wow, I knew how good ATS had been with regard to the information about what's going-on in Japan, and the discussion of it. What I didn't realize
was how quickly other people were discovering that fact. I especially didn't realize much much the so-called main-stream media were starting to mine
it for leads also!
It's kind of scary actually, to see a simple thing like an open discussion forum, have such an influence. I hope I didn't cause Bill Nye any lost
gig's on the MSM or anything like that, with this post
. I think he'd be a good guy to have on TV leading a
, asking questions of a panel of SME's ("subject matter experts"). In that type of role, he could be a good intermediary
between the public and the SME's and all their techno-babble - not to try to translate
what the SME's say, but rather to prompt them down the
right lines of discussion, etc.
Another scary thought is the ATS / Wikileaks comparison. Will ATS members now be categorized as "leaker's" and pursued for legal recourse,
prosecution or "rendition"? We've had some very useful industry insiders participating on various threads here. I would hate to loose that
Anyway, congrats ATS!
