I thought some of you might be interested in seeing this story: Family still awaits word on student who texted ‘Mommy I got buried’ in the quake.

I think it’s interesting that when disaster strikes, not only can we be tweeting photos about it or trying to contact loved ones via Facebook, but people caught in the middle of the disaster can use things like text messaging to reach out for help.
