First hand accounts keep coming on this blog — from a guy working for a hosting company (DirectNIC.org). He and a small team of colleagues remain in New Orleans to keep their network up and running. Text and images posted regularly. Link (Thanks, Tom Whalen and others) (Via BoingBoing).
The streaming video he has running is amazing all on it’s own. This guy has been posting photos, running this webcam etc. Amazing, really.
Also of note: Streaming local police scanner here. And this video blog on Current documents one young Cajun’s efforts to assist in rescue efforts. His analogy of asking a Cajun to come help people with his flat bottom boat is akin to asking a child at a fat camp to come help with a surplus of pizza. Bless him.
