(From Proposal for 811 Emergency
Communications by Eli M. Noam and Harumasa Sato)
- ``A major lesson from Kobe is that computer networks and
bulletin boards can be much more effective than voice phone networks
[...]. They are also more effective than radio and television [...]''
- ``One of the most interesting things to happen in Kobe was
the emergence of "information volunteers."''
- ``The 811 system [...] a genuine interactive
and horizontal communications medium connecting citizens, their
friends and relatives, and rescue efforts.''
