If ever there needed to be an example of the speed of information via the Internet, one needs look no further than the sad death of Heath Ledger. According to Crikey’s timeline he was found dead at 7.30am Melbourne time, TMZ reported it at 8.15 and his Wikipedia entry was changed at 8.40. Oh and the conventional news media reported his death at 8.15 – quarter of an hour later than TMZ.
