Web jumps to life in wake of disaster

In the wake of the Minnesota 35W bridge collapse, the Internet is a wash in stories, photos and video of the disaster. The personal accounts of hundreds of individuals who's lives have been some how touched by the tragedy are being told through blogs, video, and photographs uploaded to flickr and other sharing sites. Wired blogger Joe Brown has a round up on his Autopia blog. A terrible tragedy that unfortunately is not without precedent, this calls into question the state of an aging North American highway infrastructure.
