Blogging the Blast
July 20th, 2007

The New York Times’ blog City Room has a first person account of the steam pipe explosion written by Kieran Beer, the man helping the bleeding woman in the photo that has become the iconic image of the event. Beer, the editor-in-chief of Fortent Inform, a news and legal data service for financial institutions, writes: I look pretty distressed in the photo. I was, but mostly about the photo being taken. I understood the photographer was doing his job, but I really didnt want be part of the story.

City Room also has its own take on the digital coverage, noting that people used their own blogs, YouTube, and Flickr to tell their personal stories, but that many for-profit web logs were not on top of the event.
