Ready vs ReallyReady

You've probably heard of ready.gov, a site created by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a guide for emergency preparedness.


The Federation of American Scientists don't think much of it, and had a summer intern make a parody/critique of it called reallyready.org.


The blogosphere has been fun to watch on this, as a number of people set aside the question of good content and went after the idea that reallyready.org was not a well-made site. From Digg:
