Intelliseek's BlogPulse || Tsunami Crisis

Intelliseek's BlogPulse || Tsunami Crisis: "The world watched in horror and awe on Dec. 26, 2004 as an earthquake and tsunami devastated wide areas of Southern Asia.
As neighboring nations and relief agencies began organizing to help, so did another group of people: bloggers. Unlimited by geography and powered by easy blog-publishing tools, bloggers quickly sprang into action to provide information that was otherwise impossible or extremely difficult to find or disseminate.
In a remote part of the world, where traditional news crews wouldn't arrive for several days, bloggers provided some of the first eyewitness accounts, news of relief efforts, videos, still photographs, lists of victims and missing persons, and other helpful disaster aid and coordination information. Over a period of days and weeks, blogging would move yet another notch from novelty to acceptability.
BlogPulse's analysis of tsunami-related coverage in the blogsphere follows."
