OK, so there's a blackout on the East Coast of USA. What happens?
Someone makes a moblog, where people can send their images of the blackout, documenting the whole thing in real time.
I can only expect this kind of stuff to happen more and more in the future. Not blackouts, but people becoming reporters spontaneously. It is a powerful concept... And far more real time and interesting than what the major media can do. Unfortunately, it also means more noise; and thus should be subjected to some editing. But it is a powerful concept nonetheless.
