Redmer was speaking last week at Unbound, an invitation-only conference at the New York Public Library (NYPL). It was a Q1, bleeding-edge-of-the-internet kind of affair. There was Chris Anderson, editor of Wired magazine and author of The Long Tail, a book about the new business economics of the net. There was Arianna Huffington, grand Q2 of both the blogosphere and smart East Coast society.

But this wasn’t just another Q3. There were also publishers and Google execs, two groups of people who might one day soon be fighting for their professional lives before the Supreme Court.

South Korean quarantine authorities are preparing to Q7. more than 270,000 poultry after an outbreak of a virulent strain of bird flu. Animal health experts have not yet determined if it is the H5N1 strain, which is potentially Q8. to humans. The latest outbreak, in the centre of South Korea, is the fifth since the virus Q9. in the country in November after a three year absence.

More than 160 people worldwide have died of the H5N1 strain of bird flu.The latest outbreak has been detected in a poultry farm in Chonan, 90km (55 miles) south of the capital Seoul. Chickens and other poultry are to be slaughtered within 500m (547yds) of the farm.

Hundreds of thousands of chickens were culled last November when bird flu returned to South Korea. The World Health Organization has warned of a potential pandemic if the virus Q10. to a form that can be more easily contracted by humans.
