*When news breaks send out immediate alerts: SMS, email, desktop
* After 10 minutes get 150 words on the website and solicit reader help with images/video or other accounts
* Within an hour update story to 450 words and add additional images and video
* Then look to commission analysis and opinion pieces, develop a topic page with multiple angles and multimedia
