I linked to Evelyn Rodriguez’ blog in my recent post about PubSub. Apparently Rodriguez was unfortunate to be hit by the tidal wave when she was in a boat outside Phi Phi Island, but apart from hurting her leg she luckily survived. And she uses her blog to tell that she’s alright.
Ordinary people are creating their own media and document the tragic incidents in southern Asia, sometimes better than what traditional media accomplish. Some are uploading photos to for example Flickr and you can surf Flickr for photos by searching for tags like “tsunami” or “earthquake“.
