ICE Contact

Morning All,
This has been doing the rounds for the last few days and I personally
think that it is a pretty good idea.
There is also a hoax email out there saying it is a virus, just ignore
these.
To find out more visit http://www.icecontact.com/.
Whilst the idea was inspired (not sure if that is the correct word) by
the bombings in London, the sentiment behind the idea to could apply to
any situation, even if you have an accident out playing with your LC.

Yes it might help in certain circumstances, provided the mobile
outlives a disaster that may befall the owner. Does anyone think
seriously this technology is up to the task? Maybe an ID card would do
the trick? ;-)

Hi Roman,
I certainly think that it is a step in the right direction and extremely
simple to setup.
Don't get me started on that one. I have yet to see a sensible argument
for having them.

Er, not that I really care, but a little off topic....
But seeing as we're on the subject, ICE, ID cards are both fallible,
although it is amazing what survives in blasts and fires.
One of the few things to survive the 1980 SAS attack on the Iranian Embassy
and the subsequent fire, was a BBC sound recordists leather-bound Filofax,
with all pages intact, if a little singed.
ID cards is too big a subject for now. As for ICE, most people already have
relevant numbers stored on their mobiles, under home, mum, dad etc etc.
I went into central London yesterday by bus - a strange experience, although
the 2 minute silence was moving and impeccably observed. Unfortunately my
bike is off the road at the moment with a dodgy crank.
Now who's off topic...

Hi Roman,
No, not really. People are more likely to carry their mobile with them
than their ID card and even if the emergency contact info was to be
held on the card, just putting in place a mechanism so that people can
easily update those contact details on a regular basis would probably
make it prohibitive - at least with you doing it on your mobile, you
already have an invested interest to keep the contact details up to
date.
Personally I would prefer to see the vast sums expected to be spent on
ID cards on proper policing of our borders and our streets.
OK, political rant over, let's talk about tyres ;-)

Julian,
I don't feel like going into this argument either but it will never
amaze me how badly we in this country react to some ideas, tried and
tested elsewhere, in the fear of giving up our civil liberties. Which
liberties? Aren't we already numbers, not names?

Britain, not even being bordered on by a non-EU contry, has one of the
highest budgets on policing the borders. How much more do we need to
spend to feel safe?

OK, what's the difference between a used tyre and 365 used rubbers?
