As I write this, the Northeast United States is hunkered down against Hurricane / Superstorm Sandy. Naturally, and particularly in an election cycle, the government officials wish to be seen and be seen being effective.
To do so they presented this picture (with associated video clip):
FEMA – Federal Emergency Management Agency, check.
People – Officials of some sort (who require name plates to know each other), check.
President – Looking important, check.
*** Now I’ve been to many an important business meeting, and even some government meetings. They are loaded with projectors and presentations, computers and everyone checking their iPhone’s. It may be true the most important people don’t have that, but they’ll have an assistant nearby with it.
So let’s see how, in this day and age, our government officials are prepared to capture and look up information, and quickly communicate emergency decisions…
Microphone, check. ???
Reporters, check. ???
Laptops – none.
Pads – none.
Smartphones – none.
