Sandy was one of the most impactful physical events that the US has ever seen, yet my experience of it in NYC was largely a digital one. We weathered the storm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and tracked its progress with our friends through a digital network of Facebook, Twitter, SMS, YouTube and other news outlets.
The relevance of these networks blossomed into something I’ve never experienced before, and yet as the storm passed the content quickly shifted back to Halloween costumes and the Presidential election as Sandy scrolled off the screen. To preserve a slice of that experience I created a timeline of Sandy-related activity from my personal network.
