Really neat motion graphic for the upcoming game Tom Clancy’s The Division:
In 2001, an operation known as “Dark Winter” was launched which was a real-world exercise that tested the emergency response to a bioterror attack on the United States. The simulation spiraled out of control within a few days, and predicted that a “breakdown in essential institutions,” civil disorder, and massive civilian casualties. Dark Winter has revealed how vulnerable we’ve become. Our lifestyle, our security, our safety depends on a delicate and unstable economy. We’ve created a system so complicated that we no longer understand how to control it.
The events described sound very plausible I must say.
