Boston Terror Scare

There's lots of great coverage of the Boston Terror Scare available on YouTube.  In case you are wondering what caused the scare, it is more or less this:

You can buy it at amazon.com here, and there is even a travel version, but I'm guessing you aren't going to be able to carry it on a plane anytime in the near future. I can't wait to see The DailyShow's coverage of today's events.  The Zebro video is not work-safe, or I'd link to it here.

My favorite magazine, Make, has posted some good coverage of the events and pictures of the actual devices if you are interested.  Warning - the photo in the Make coverage are also not work safe if your employer has a problem with LED cartoon characters making, as one correspondent said, "an obscene gesture."  (If you are a techie, who does work for a place like that, check out my company's help-wanted page.  We have a sense of humor.  New engineering postings will go up sometime on Friday.)

If I lived in Boston I would be really really scared.

Those devices had been up for 3 weeks (and in 9 other cities) and nobody noticed them. All of a sudden everyone panics and they put the city in lock down. They even blew up one of the devices.

I would be really concerned that the police terrorist and bomb experts can't recognize an advertising campaign. It looks to me like the "experts" aren't all that smart.

Instead of the city/mayor etc demanding restitution from the 2 "terrorists" they should be demanding that their so called experts return their paychecks and answer competency charges.
