Re: Sony's Thai factory--total loss
Nikon probably has a much bigger problem than Sony here, since Sony can choose between several factories to pick up production. Nikon doesn't have that possibility, at least not short term, since 90% of their DSLR production was concentrated at one location, together with some of the high volume lenses.
I won't say too much about Thailand's water management and the crisis management surrounding this, at least not on an online forum, but this was a disaster waiting to happen. The Ayuttaya province has been flooded deliberately for many years to avoid flooding in Bangkok. It was only a question of time before the situation got out of hand. Considering these floods have been coming with different strength every year for centuries, the whole situation is... I don't really know...
If I'm not taking the risk of making mistakes, I'm just repeating myself, not adding anything to the universe and not growing. If I'm not growing, I'm dying.
