Now making its way into theaters across the country, "The War Tapes" is a documentary born of the Internet age. Director Deborah Scranton put inexpensive Sony camcorders in the hands of several soldiers (in this picture, Spc. Mike Moriarty) from a New Hampshire National Guard unit and kept in constant touch with them during their 2004 tour of duty via e-mail and instant messages. One notable result: The movie won top documentary honors at the Tribeca Film Festival in May.
