Dependence to Interdependence
Hard Drive Delays (a message I just received from a supplier):
"Floods in Thailand has shut down thousand of factories, flooded hundreds of thousands of homes and put more than half a million employees out of work. The impact of the flooding in Thailand will result in shortages that may well loom into 2012."
When we save money by depending on other parts of the world for our well being, how much does it cost us when the shit hits the fan?
Isn't it time we took responsibility for our own electricity, water, sewerage, food, etc? We don't each need to do it all. We can do it easily with interdependence.
