Charley blogging: As my wife (and therefore children) have deep roots in the swath of Florida slammed by Hurricane Charley (fortunately and with great relief and gratitude, all kin are on high-ground and safe), I have jumped back online to follow the events.
First, providing a how-to lesson on how traditionial media can use blogging conventions (real-time updates, reverse chronological structure) is the Orlando Sentinel (major kudos). The WeatherBug’s Ryan Towell, a meterologist, gives an on-the-ground report. The Command Post is blogging the storm and aftermath 24-7 with lots of links to news sources and relief organizations. Elizabeth from Orlando (not many reporters would call the storm “a pansy”?) Buzzmodo blogs from his home in Winter Park Here’s a link to Technorati’s results page of “hurricane charley” mentions by bloggers.
Non-blogging news coverage:
Hurricane resources from Poynter Institute (via ResourceShelf.com) St. Petersburg Times Tampa Tribune Here’s a link to Google News’ results page for most recent news stories about the storm and aftermath One last update: When the Charlotte (Fla.) Sun gets their site back up, they should have an interesting story to share.
Okay, I am now officially back offline. If you came here looking for magazine-industry news, the previous post gives you some suggestions.
