Blogging in the Darkness

Maintaining business continuity during the Great Blackout is a challenge that few executives were prepared for.

It takes more than a total power failure to stop Gill from blogging. Fortunately, we were prepared to post messages to the Gill weblog from "always on" wireless email technology of the amazing BlackBerry - even though our Internet connection is down because of the massive power failure across much of Canada and the USA. Our clients and business associates in areas unaffected will be able to hear from us using the Internet. Clients in the affected area have been in regular contact using their BlackBerry handheld devices, which performed flawlessly during the crisis.

Power on, or power off, we'll be commenting here later today about the implications of today's electricity crisis for business continuity planning.
