    Really good find. Wonder if there is a way to expand on this to include your average John or Jane Doe. It would be a great way to warn people of impending dangers and hazards.

    Conceptually I do like the idea, but to me I think the time I would need emergency communications would be when the telco network fails. Such a case could be either a direct telco incedent (fire in the central office) or indirect like the WTC on 2001. Without it's wireless link a blackberry isn't as useful, although things like 802.11 may be a help in this instance.
