BLOGGING THE TSUNAMI: Over at GlennReynolds.com I observe: "Many of the blogs involved have been gathering first-hand reports from the affected areas, via telephone and email. First-hand reports, interviews, historical and scientific perspectives -- blogs are acting like news services."
I think we'll see more of that.
UPDATE: Here's a tsunami news blog set up by bloggers from the affected region. Lots of links to charities that accept online donations.
