Mike Rohde just sent me a link about a guy who is still in downtown New Orleans and he’s blogging and hosting a web cam. He goes by the name of Interdictor and from reading his profile he’s a bit extreme, but I guess you’d need to be in times like this. To quote is synopsis of his blog:
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.
Now you might be wondering just what the hell this guy is doing staying in New Orleans. Well, it seems he works for a company called DirectNIC, which hosts hundreds of thousands of web sites and their data center is located in downtown New Orleans. He’s on the 10th and 11th floors of a corporate high rise on 650 Poydras Ave right near St. Charles. They are running a diesel generator to keep power going and the police have been using their building as a staging area, so that’s good news.
