    people have short memories. Tall buildings have a future, they just need to be shown to be EQ proof. I will have no problem returning to my 5th floor office/desk

    Buggered if I would work up the top of one again, and quite a few people I know that were in those are all saying the same thing - not working up that high again.

    Also, it's about risk, and a lot of businesses won't take the chance of increasing risk further.

    I think most of the big ones are knackered anyway aren't they?

    I guess new buildings wil be built better, this has been one of the most studied/observed quakes ever.

    The two (modernish) buildings that did fail wernt up to current codes and were the precise height fortold to be succeptable to resonance.

    A sad sight for Christchurch lovers of cheap Greek food, plentiful Ouzo and dancing on barrels...
