Saturday, August 30, 2008 goes all out

This screen shot shows only a small part of the offerings of the Web site of the local paper, The Times-Picayune. The paper distinguished itself during Katrina by publishing from its New Orleans offices as long as it possibly could. When it could no longer use an actual press, it published pages designed for the print press online with full readability. The blogs it hosted and the online forums it set up were instrumental in saving lives, alerting people to dangers and those in need, and helping friends and relatives connect during a time of chaos and devastation.
