Link journalism in the Northwest

Publish2 editor Josh Knorr has an illuminating post of the p2 blog today describing how a handful of Washington State journalists quickly home-brewed a plan to share coverage and links to stories about the flooding there.

Working collaboratively, all were able to provide far broader coverage and more detail than any could on its own. This web page from the Kitsap Sun shows how some of the linking looked. I know the Tacoma News Tribune and Seattle Times were trading links in previously verboten ways, as well, though I don't know the details.
