Project Warn

The Arthur C. Clarke Foundation
It is ironic that Sir Arthur C. Clarke through his foundation has been involved in Project Warn for some time. The Project was planning a simulation test of a warning and disaster response system relating to a major Tsunami in 2005. Clearly, Sir Arthur Clarke is using his intellect and the wealth he has acquired through his books to approach major humanitarian issues using technology.

Neat technology combination

This is pretty neat. A digital recorder that you can speak into and then hook to your computer where your recorded lectures or stories are converted to text files. Very neat.
