I was going through my Twitter page when I read a "tweet" from Genie in Oakland. She mentioned how she had been awaken by a huge crashing sound on the freeway near where she lives. A few minutes later the news was on the tv. Right when you think Twitter is just a social conversation piece it shows up as a first on the scene news report. We are getting close to throwing out the old tv we have had for 12 years. Buy a new flat screen, plasma, tv? No. We get the news via the web and that's great. We can download most of what we really want to see on the computer. So the tool that I grew up with is now outmoded and a whole new world comes into being. I think it's better. More chances to interact and that's a great thing!
