The increasingly documented world

Since I do not watch TV, I miss a lot and fail to chronicle events that many people see. I was reading a Forbes article on a recent Apple commercial. Fortunately there is a copy on Youtube. The punch line was more photos are taken every day with the iPhone than with any other camera.

Next week in San Diego I am part of a panel on emerging trends. The fact that everyone with a smart phone is a journalist is hardly news, but the trend gets stronger every week. Where did the photos and videos of the Boston bombing shootout largely come from and what were they posted to?
