At the end of 2017, Strava, a mobile app used to track athletic activity, released a global heatmap showing the “anonymised” movement patterns of all app users who do not select the option to keep their data private. Among these app users are seafarers and people working on offshore platforms who likely do not realise how publicly they are sharing their location.
In a crowded city, anonymising the data is effective because there are so many people in the area that it is virtually impossible to identify the movement patterns of any individual. However, as there are relatively few app users at sea (or in other remote areas) it becomes possible to follow the movement patterns of just one app user.

As media outlets of all shapes and sizes produce the inevitable litany of “year in review” stories, columns, features and podcasts, it’s a good time to remind ourselves that stories often live on long… long after the event they’re about is over and done with.
There are three important factors which contribute to this often-annoying reality – one inevitable, one cynical, and one a part of how stories shape our world.

Disaster strikes and it’s your phone ringing… If only crises themselves would go on strike – walk out over a pay dispute or better still, not show up at all!
My phone has rung on many occasions: aid workers killed in Afghanistan… marines and boats seized by Iran… seven detained by Sudanese faction… aircraft down…
Whilst every crisis is shared, there’s little about crisis communications that seems fair.
