Twitter eye witness account on Osama mission via Mashable.
Grant Hunter and Jon Burkhart presented the future of real-time content at SXSWi in March 2011. We call it Urgent Genius: Creating Topical Social Ideas At Speed.
Watch the news. Get an idea. Stay up all night. Write. Design. Code. Seed it on one website. Get 25 million hits in 3 days. This is the new breed of hybrid creative. They're dangerous. They join start-ups. They revolutionise design and ad agencies. They're turning creative departments into newsrooms. This is a proactive place where what's topical is king, so the content must be created quickly. This is the only way it will have an immediate impact across all social channels. This means hours. Not days and weeks. These hybrid types have a motto: Do it now. Ask forgiveness later. It's easier than getting permission.

Thank you to everyone who took part. The response has been immense and we’ve been up into the early hours collating this list. There are a few missing links so please let us know and we’ll update as soon as we can. If anyone’s work is missing then it’s not intentional so drop us a note and we’ll get it sorted.
