Skeptikai Notices (Sep11) – 9/11, Hackers, Psychology, and more

9/11:

The international news media has been writing extensively about 9/11, because of the 10-year anniversary of the incident. I couldn’t possibly reproduce all of the articles about it, but here are some of the pieces that stood out for me…

Internet archive shows Sept. 11 coverage – A website has gathered international news broadcasts on the 9/11 attacks, totaling over 3,000 hours of television. This is useful for researchers, and it’s interesting to compare the news from different perspectives, from America, to the UK, to Japan, etc.

The Sky is Falling over the Rising Sun

If you read past the headline, you should know that I actually believe Japan will be okay, and this post is primarily to make a point. A lot has happened since my last articles regarding the situation here (over a month has passed), and there’s a lot to say (way too much for one post). I will explain more later, but the first thing I want to do is discuss the gravity of the disaster in the same way the foreign media has been doing since the start – focusing entirely on the negative.
