It’s interesting watching and listening about the preparation for Hurricane Irene from afar. I have seen tweets from Comcast and several other infrastructure providers reporting on getting crews ready to keep services up and running.

There is no doubt in my mind that cell networks will be overloaded — they always seem like they are at capacity on any given day, in most major cities. What will be far more interesting if what prevails as the best way to get news — so often it has been Twitter, but will people be able to get access to it?
