Houston Chronicle “gets” blogging


Houston Chronicle logo

You may be aware I do a blog discussing mobile phones (jkOnThePhone) on the Houston Chronicle and while I may be biased I think their web site is as good or better than any newspaper’s web site.  Today a problem with the power company has knocked out power to a large section of downtown Houston and that included the Chronicle’s offices and servers for the web site.  Rather than have no web site providing the day’s top news items the Chronicle shows how they “get it” about blogging and the main URL now directs you to an emergency blog where you can get all the news.  A newspaper using a blog as an emergency web site, now that’s really cool.
