Here’s Matt interviewing Jason about running the online operations at the Cedar Rapids Gazette during the floods:

Q: Had you already put into place a plan for handling breaking stories, or were you working on the fly?
Jason: As far as having a template approach for display of a major breaking news event online, we were basically working on the fly. As far as a system for getting information into the newsroom quickly for immediate coverage, we had that part already covered.”
