You see, The Seattle Times is one of those organizations that understands how social media and traditional news go hand in hand. When the story broke about four Seattle-area police officers being shot, the Times decided to not only follow the story on their site, but to also get their audience involved by opening a Google Wave for the story. The Wave allowed for real-time updates, not only from the Times staff, but also from readers. As users of the Wave dug through information across the Internet, evidence sightings, witness reports and school closings were given out immediately.
