Blogging saves the day!

This just reported from the blog Adamnation: Because of the fire in downtown Houston, the Houston Chronicle was forced to rely on blogging alone to deliver news via the Internet. Without their main Chron.com site operational, the staff broke out the laptops and redirected the site to their Moveable Type blogs.

Apparently the power has been restored downtown once again, but as of this post, the modified Chron.com site is still up. Hmm… it almost seems like this blogging thing may be the way to go. ;)
