The Advent of Moblogging

["Welcome to 21st century journalism, where citizens armed with camera phones can instantly become reporters -- or publishers."]

by Bruce Rutledge -- "One image briefly dominated the TV news in Japan during the afternoon of Monday, June 23: It was a video of a 12-car pileup that occurred earlier that morning on the Tomei Expressway in Aichi Prefecture.

Flames and twisted metal seemed to stretch forever. According to newscasters, four people were dead and 13 injured because a tired truck driver failed to slow down as he approached a congested part of the expressway.

There were no traffic helicopters swooping down to get a better look at the crash and no reporters dispatched to the stretch of highway where the pileup took place that morning. Instead, Japanese TV viewers first saw the crash thanks to another truck driver who used his camera phone to shoot video of the wreckage."
