Keeping the live in live blogging

Norkon announces the launch of Parachute for Live Center

With up-to-the-second live blogging central to many media, sports, and news outlets, what happens if you’re suddenly unable to post content live? Not only will you risk losing your audience and readers, you also put ad revenue at risk.
