Swine Flu and Twitter
Many people use Twitter while they're on-the-go. Many use a smartphone, laptop, or other mobile device. I use my convertible tablet PC (Lenovo Thinkpad X200 Tablet) when I'm at home, but I'll also take my OQO model 02 if I'm heading out to the mall or coffee shop. Mobile computing technology has made it so easy for us to stay connected. SARS threatened the world in 2002-2003. Looking back, those years seem like the "Dark Ages" of computing. Think about the types of hardware we had! You were lucky to find a Pentium 4 processor on a mobile device. I hope that we'll get to leverage moden computing technology to combat this possible swine flu pandemic.
