+ - Commercial plane crash in Moscow caught on passerby's vehicle dash cam->

Submitted by acidradio
acidradio (659704) writes "Yesterday a Tupolev 204 (Russian-made aircraft equivalent to an Airbus 321 or a shortened 757) overran the runway at Moscow Vnukovo airport and crashed into a nearby highway. A plane crash is always bad but what makes this seem different is how well it was recorded. It seems like *everyone* in Russia has a dashcam, here is footage: http://youtu.be/hEQdW6yS5o4. A driver who just happened to be driving by on the nearby M3 highway (right about here on the map: http://goo.gl/maps/MVlYr) is pelted by flying nose wheels and a row of coach-class seats! An accident like this has probably never been filmed so up close. We are getting better and better at recording accidents and disasters (whether by coincidence due to overuse of surveillance or maybe on purpose). What does that say about our level of documentation and recording of people's everyday lives? And what's the deal with dashcams in every Russian car?"

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
