Okay, one more.
One fascinating aspect of this Mumbai debacle is how citizens have really picked up the slack journalism wise. People are using Twitter, Flickr, and blogs as we speak to post real time updates about the situation way before major media outlets can get there. We are looking at a curious and fascinating future, folks: you thought the TV news was real time coverage? You ain't seen nothing yet. The filters are breaking down and thank God for that.
Please, please look at this stuff.
