London Blogging

This morning, I casually checked Instapundit to get a jump on the news today. By 7:30am, there was already incredible amounts of
first hand accounts, compilations, pictures, links to sort through about the London bombings.

This immediacy to me is one of the best aspects of new technology. Instead of listening to a talking head on the TV, you can read real-time accounts of individuals, just like you, that are actually experiencing the event. "Citizen reports" bring a fresh perspective that has been lost for so long due to greater emphasis on the entertainment value of mainstream media.
