Some of you have heard of me talking about how news reporting will become personal responsibility.
Minute to minute update of a guy keeping an ISP running down the street from the New Orleans Superdome.
What’s amazing are the comments of the hundreds of people reading his journal currently. They’re not just wishing him luck.
They’re feeding him information from around the world, giving him direct numbers to people that he needs to get in contact with to keep his network connection up, giving him tips on how to keep a diesel generator running, and mirroring the images that he’s been taking of the disaster.
In short, he’s calling on the internet to assist him, and it is responding.
