One thought on “Episode 11: Hurricane Isaac, Venezuela Disaster, Social Media Censorship in India and More”

  1. Suject: Nike 350$ shoes. Not Crisis, not really an attack but a minority that gives itself free publicity thru this what I qualify as a Nike Free Raid

    Suject Air line and Salmonela: Like it was mentionned, one needs to understand the mechanisms in place to prevent crisis ie: Event Monitoring, Pro-activity and Escalation of Incidents and Major incident Management before it reaches crisis criteria… most crisis have already pro-actively managed to the best media-impact financial cost ratio…

    Suject Quebec Separatist: Why road construction cost more in Quebec than other provinces; Why our bridges fall and kill autombilist and why most “Quebecois” will shop at Wallmart intead of “chez Ti-Jean” because it is cheaper and why we throw away massive amount of recyclable material. Can a group that has a hard time responsively taking care of themselves seperate… this is the real crises.
