Move Over CNN

Blogging about disasters as they happen is so 2004. These days, we capture video of terror attacks on our cell phone cameras and upload the images to Flickr groups. (Heck, we even file instant entries in the Wikipedia.) It's collaborative visual reporting, and now it's everywhere.

Real journalists are jealous.

P.S. For you SMS fans out there, the WSJ reports that mobile phone services were jammed in London yesterday, but people could text each other to say they were alright.
