Social Media, Japan, and the tsunami, Boston, Fox-TV News 3/11

You can see the full clip at the Fox news site here (and click the video below the main one) or see the embedded version below:



This was a spot where Kim Carrigan and I discussed social media after the tsunami in Japan.

My key points:

  • Cell phones know where you are, so why can't they tell you when an emergency is happening in your area
    • "If your cell phone can tell you that there is a Starbucks 5 minutes away, why can't they tell you that there is a tsunami 5 minutes away", at 1:55
  • Microsoft's search engine, bing, used the tsunami as an opportunity to market their search engine, and the community ripped them for doing it
