KFnet in T-Town

Video ~ Capitalizing from Atlas Explosion

Too soon?

The video of the Atlas Foundry explosion is pretty startling stuff but I'd yet to see a copy land on YouTube which is why I only posted stills on KFnet. Today it came up in the FT video area but had a last title freeze frame toward the end that I found disturbing:

Yea, wow. An ad to make sure you know their hoses don't do that hole exploding thing. Too soon or welcome public service?

Too soon? Nah, it's a split-second world in which we now live. Poor taste? Definitely. And the caliber of marketing being demonstrated is pretty pathetic. How would anyone know where to go for a 'smart hose'?

Well, given the name, it's sure got to be better than that 'stupid hose' that caused all this grief in the first place.

I bet the family of the dead truck driver is thrilled.

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
