Events Leading Up To Disaster

It has been my observation that almost always, in terrible disasters, it is not just one thing that has gone wrong, but at least two, and often more.

When you take a picture and tweet it, Blackberry can automatically send it via a yfrog link. So, you don’t really have to deal with yfrog, it works automatically.  AW may not have been aware that DM’ing a picture privately, would leave that picture publicly viewable in yfrog (1st mistake).

If AW put a caption on the picture (and if it was “part of a joke”, then he probably did), then the text plus the link could exceed 140 characters. In that case, his carrier could break up the message into 2 pieces: the caption sent via DM and the yfrog link to the picture sent as an @reply. The yfrog link to the picture would then appear on his public twitter feed (2nd mistake).

AW had been watchin’ the hockey game, maybe havin’ a couple beers (who watches a hockey game without beer? And who watches a hockey game and has only one beer?) Hits “G”, the app autofills using alphabetical order, with a name that looks right. AW recognizes the autofilled name as that of a pretty girl’s, so beer-addled brain tells him it’s a match and he hits send (3rd mistake).

annddd… GAME OVER.

    • for wordpress.com blogs:

      -create a playlist at Mixtape.me
      -add it as a video on vodpod
      -on vodpod, click to “Share” that video and then click “get wordpress shortcode”
      copy and paste that into a page or a text widget
