Bloggers recall 9/11

Print

When the world changed on Sept. 11, 2001, the web changed with it. Phone lines and news sites were overloaded, so many people turned to the first-hand reports of blogs. And, as Dan Gillmor said, bloggers may have written the first draft of history on that day.

September 11 came up in several blogger interviews for the film Blogumentary. Here are a few excerpts. The first is with the Minnesota conservative bloggers at Power Line. We started out talking about Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, which led to Iraq, which finally led to 9/11. The next interview is with Jeff Jarvis, who explains how his blog was born out of his first-hand experience of the attacks. Lastly, we hear a bit from then-New York blogger Anil Dash, who writes today of his sadness for hope lost.
