The refresh button has redeemed itself. A couple of days back I had blogged about how clicking that damn button was getting almost traumatic, with every refresh revealing a rise in the death toll. Well, refreshing that button feels a little better today. Take a look at the Amazon page for donating to the Red Cross. There's a figure on the right which indicates donations made so far. Seen it? Now refresh.

When I first came across this page, barely a few hours ago, it was $400,000. Since then it has soared, as more and more people have put their money where their hearts clearly are.

Now let's just hope the money goes where it's intended to. Trust an Indian to be worried about that.
