Alaska Airlines Flight #536

Turns out one of the guys on Alaska Airlines flight #536 was Blogebrity's own Jeremy Hermanns. Read his account of the incident.

What I find interesting about this isn't so much who was on the flight as the fact that details of the incident have hit the blogasphere so quickly. And that major news organizations have picked up the details from the blog. The immediacy of coverage is impressive.

I've been reading a lot about how bloggers have changed the face of reporting - coverage is more candid, and more immediate. Reminds me a lot about how online reporting changed the game a few years ago when I was doing a lot more press for MSFT. Jeremy's post takes this to a whole new level, more of a "and you were there" type of thing.
