  • Peter O'Dowd went above and beyond on this web exclusive. He got the guy who bought a pair of Google Glasses -- and the story of what happened next.
  • Krissy Clark got an early in with the guys whose job it was to sift through video evidence -- and updated her online piece as the Boston story developed.
