Thoughts on our changing public information environment, or how one IC makes me look smarter than I am

Just noticed this blog post by one of my favorite (and best, in my mind) Incident Commander-type professionals. He’s now blogging at, otherwise known as “It’s Not My Emergency.”

To get you used to going to his blog, I’ll just provide this link to his article which is some ruminations on a conversation over Woods Coffee coffee (our local improvement over Starbucks). All I’ll say is if he got all that out of our conversation, I’m a lot smarter than I think. I think he is right on with his conclusions even if I can’t take all the credit for them.
