It's nice to see the media *finally* starting to talk about the 'bird flu'. Of all the possible ways for humanity to off itself, the bird flu's my fave, and I've been keeping an eye on it for most of the year.

Of course, like usual the media's focusing on the hype and the scare, and sometimes missing the details. I'm worried that even though it's getting some attention, since the media has cried wolf a lot (sars, ebola, etc.) people will ignore this one, and won't be prepared.

I've written up some thoughts on preparing for the bird flu.
