Citizen Journalism at its Best

Jeremy Hermanns was on Alaska Air flight #536 yesterday when the plane suddenly de-pressurized and he had the presence of mind to snap a few photos from his Treo. (The AP has now picked up his coverage.)

This reminded me of Adam Stacey’s firsthand blogging of the London bombings in July. As Tim Porter so aptly stated:

Terrorism made Stacey a victim; technology made him a reporter.

I tried my hand at live-blogging a newsworthy story, though thankfully mine wasn’t nearly as frightening.
