Learning From Accidents and a Terrorist Attack (07 Sep 2004)
I can imagine many "regular" people reacting to an emergency need for information by turning on the TV and/or radio, using their phone or cell phone, and using Google or their preferred search engine. (Many of my readers would probably check their RSS aggregators.) There should be a known way to specify to the search engines that they should return only real-time and situational specific information. There needs to be a way for "officials" to disseminate information to such feeds. There needs to be ways to establish limited access feeds and easily give access to such feeds to appropriate people, much as "talk groups" are used on "point-to-point" radio.
