Brisbane Storm: photo by @dellvink and live coverage at the Courier-Mail #bnestorm

Brisbane Storm photo by Flickr user dellvink

This photo of tonight's storm just got put onto Flickr by dellvink. If you're on twitter, you can follow dellvink's updates here.

People on twitter have been using the hashtag #bnestorm for a while now to track what's happening with storms in Brisbane. The Courier-Mail have done a clever mash-up on their website using the Cover It Live service, so that all the Twitter updates that have the phrase #bnestorm in them show up in their live rolling coverage. (Click on the "view live event" link to start watching what's happening - but note that the times are an hour later than they should be). And if you're not on Twitter, you can still add a comment directly via the Courier-Mail page.

(What the hell is a hashtag? Click here for more info).

If you're on Twitter, a service that lets you find out what people are doing, you might want to follow the Brisbane Blog's Twitter account and you'll get updated every time there is a new story on the Brisbane Blog. Or if you want more, follow my personal account (David Jackmanson) and find out what I'm up to.
