Good article by Xeni (a boing boing blogger) in Wired about the role of SMS in disseminating information about SARS and the attitude among Asians about SARS.

As SARS gallows humor is forwarded from cell phone to cell phone throughout the region, are "cough" ring tones next?


so next time I see you I'll be sure to bring a mask k? :)

Just make sure you wash your cell phone before you share it.

I'm enjoying the extra quiet that comes with Americans being afraid of SARS in Toronto. Though I'm somewhat less happy about the fact that Toronto has the highest fatality rate per infected individual than anywhere.

SARS is disseminating by gene, while SMS on meme.
