Some relevant news stories

Hi all, today I came across two international stories that made me think about recent talking points in EASA.

 

First:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/greenslade/2012/jan/20/newspapers-japan

This is a story of a newspaper faced with the problem of not being able to print in the face of their biggest ever story.

Second:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/front_page/16614795.stm

This is a story of The Island Games.  It’s a collection of 24 small islands (not like the UK or Ireland or something), that hold their own version of the Olympics.  They’ve been at it for about the same length of as EASA has been on the go, but recently they’ve seen an arms race in terms of bidding to host the event (sound familiar?) and this year they have decided to dump the bidding process all together.  Perhaps not a model for EASA, but interesting to follow non the less.
