From the Front Lines of Katrina

Herbie sent out this link last night to the AB lists. READ IT.

The Interdictor — a blog from the front lines of the aftermath of Katrina. is a web service provider in the CBD of New Orleans on Poydras Street (not far from the Superdome). Michael and a small group of his coworkers have been in the datacenter since Saturday 8/27, keeping their business running as well as providing a near-constant stream of commentary about the situation. As he stated:

This journal has become the Survival of New Orleans blog. In less perilous times it was simply a blog for me to talk smack and chat with friends. Now this journal exists to share firsthand experience of the disaster and its aftermath with anyone interested.

Michael, we thank you for taking the time from a daunting task to give the world an uncensored citizen’s-eye view of a seminal event. God/dess bless you, and dude, don’t let Crystal get away!

Incidentally, some publisher needs to be on top of this and give Michael a big fat contract to publish this account, with minimal if any editing. Anyone out there listening???
