Bloggers journal Katrina destruction | CNET

CNET "As Hurricane Katrina tore across the Gulf Coast on Monday, the Web provided some of the most vivid, first-hand accounts of the storm's destructive path in the form of blogs, online photo galleries and discussion forums.
Blogs run by two New Orleans news outlets--The Times-Picayune newspaper and NBC TV affiliate WDSU--were among the most prolific. The Times-Picayune blog, run in partnership with local news site, mainly ran contributions from its own reporters, but included some photos and reports from 'citizen journalists,' as well. The site's online forums gave readers a place to exchange questions and information instantly.
The NBC affiliate took a similar approach, posting blog accounts from its staff along side news and photos from the Associated Press. "
