Victorian fires


I’ve received a whole bunch of emails from friends on the other side of the world, concerned about the fires around Melbourne and whether I’m OK.  (If you haven’t seen any news for a few days check it out here in a video from The Age, a Melbourne daily.)

Some of them I haven’t heard from in over a year and most of them have re-connected through Facebook or LinkedIn.  It’s strange how tragedy makes people reach out and pull together and I wonder what could be done to get people to do the same in pursuit of a positive goal instead of one of rescue?
