birth of the blog
I know that there are several people who chose to pick a specific event and how the media or blogs depicted them. During my research I found this article which looked at how vital blogs can be in situations of disasters or tragic events (ie- school shootings, Hurricane Katrina). It examines how the events of September 11 2001 really showed and boosted the importance of blogs due to the first hand accounts and eye witness videos and testimonies. I thought it might be interesting for some of us whose papers are on similar events or subjects.
