A few weeks ago I wrote a response to Ruth’s article “How the Emergency Alert System has already been tested–and could be improved”. When I showed her my response and asked for help making it sound good (as you should already know I could keep several editors busy on a daily basis). She provided some very good insight on how to improve my writing (but I like words with ‘z’ in them) and also offered to publish the paper on the OpenSource.com website. How could I refuse such an offer? So here it is, the awesome response and plan for bringing the emergency alert system into the 21st century kicking an screaming, Building an Emergency Alert System for the 21st century.
Oh, and if you find any problems in the essay blame my editor.
