Andrea Dworkin

Andrea Dworkin died on Saturday. She was 58.

I realize this example will only work for a little while, but imagine an encyclopedia that had someone’s death noted in their biography before the first major news outlet had even published an obituary. That’s Wikipedia.

UPDATE: At 12:15 CDT, we get this report from the Guardian.

UPDATE, 12 April 2005: The Guardian Newsblog links to this post and contains some additional information on how the news of Ms. Dworkin’s death was disseminated.

Disclaimer Haiku:
West wind seems to say,
"This is not legal advice;
I'm not your lawyer."

(And if you're a client with whom I have a preexisting attorney-client relationship, this still isn't legal advice.)
