It's a little bit funny. On facebook a couple of months ago, Freya Valentine started this group. It's not the most exciting of ideas, but has generated a bit of a cult following. It's been mentioned on Sky & the BBC's Steve Wright Show.
I'd be interested to hear on how the Panic buying is getting along, therefore suggested setting up a twit-feed to monitor it - however, twitter has been down for the last couple of hours.
Just goes to show that a de-centralised system is needed. A free, open source, de-centralised mechanism for twittering.
Oh well, I'll just have to remain ignorant, and enjoy my carrot soup.
