Props to the Star Tribune

My husband sent me a link to the Star Tribune web site, 13 Seconds in August, the 35w Bridge collapse. It’s the top story on the site today.

I think this is a well formed work of journalism for the new century. It informs the public, it tells an amazing story and the part that really makes it a 21st century approach is providing a mechanism for survivors to add detail to the story. Everyone in MN and probably the country felt this tragedy in a visceral way. To provide an extension of the information and present it to the public as a work in progress is brave and valuable. This is a nice example of evolveing journalism for today — thanks Star Tribune.
