The "Ice Bucket Challenge" craze has been sweeping social media for the past few weeks, raising awareness of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) -- also known as motor neurone disease (MND) -- and raising money for associated charities.
But Hans is just one man with one bucket. What about 1,200 buckets, like they managed at corporate communications services specialist Granite Telecommunications LLC ? Once they get there, it's quite the spectacle…
And, for my sins, I was pressed into action.
So who else has soaked themselves? Let us know, or if it was you, upload your video in the message boards below as a video message.

Following the C$562 million nuptials of Procera and Sandvine, the resulting packet inspection, analytics and policy management specialist is pitching itself to service providers as a key enabler in the shift to automated processes.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
