And separately from our sincere sympathies, I wanted to draw your attention to the technology aspect of this horrific event -
From CNN: "Madison Van Duyne said she and her classmates in a media writing class were on "lockdown" in their classrooms. They were huddled in the middle of the classroom, writing stories about the shootings and posting them online.
The university is updating its 26,000 students through e-mails, and an Internet webcam is broadcasting live pictures of the campus."
Also, student videos and pictures from cell phones are already posted on news sites. VT has done a fast and thorough response on their university web site, including a podcast from President Steger.
