5.8 earthquake

Yes we felt it here in Brooklyn heights. What surprised me is how long it went on for.

Two things I’ve learnt

1/ our mobile phone infrastructure is shit, my wife couldn’t reach me on my Verizon mobile kept sending her to my voicemail (and when she called the office number the voip service is configured to also send calls simultaneously to mobile….means she kept getting voicemail), when i called her cell from my home number the same thing. sms's worked though.

2/ People naturally flocked to Twitter instead of Facebook, I’m seeing as much as 20x the traffic on Twitter as I am on Facebook.

Apart from that we're all fine and back to work :)
