"Captain Held After Cruise Ship Capsizes" - SkyNews (video)

Marc Rougier's insight:

January 2011 was full of hope: we celebrated the Arab spring and the beginning of a year which ended up being tough on tyrans.


2012 was less glorious on many fronts (armed conflicts, economic crisis). The ship Concordia (= "harmony"; beautiful name...) gave the starting signal. A half a billion capsized ship and a chaotic evacuation.


We however need to learn to catch the good signals and to generate good vibes! Here is a personal curation of some 2012 events - politics, business, web, sport, art... what marked me in the past 12 months. Enjoy, share and comment. And most importantly, let 2013 be a better year for everyone!

Jan 2011: The Arab Spring

Jan 2011: The Arab Spring | A Year in 12 Posts | Scoop.it

On January 4, Mohamed Bouazizi died. He set himself on fire in Dec. 2010. "His act became a catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution and the wider Arab Spring".


Still a long way to go for peace, freedom and democracy, but this heralded a bad year for tyrants: goodbye Ben Ali, Mubarak, Gaddafi, Bin Laden, Kim Jong Il.
