Filipinos are crazy about Farmville. For the longest time, I tried to stay its lure, but eventually I succumbed to its calling.
During the first 4 days of the storm, the absence of Farmville feeds from my Philippines network was striking. It’s just a game, but I knew what the absence of those (sometime irritating) feeds meant: my family and friends couldn’t play because they were stranded, displaced; their furniture, applicances and electronic gadgets damaged by the flood; they had no electricity, no time to relax — no time to play when a torrent of chaos and catastrophe engulfs you. What occupied their minds were the bare necessities for survival: dry and safe shelter, food, loved ones.
Let’s ask Farmville to lend a hand. Why not?
