I just remembered that I re-created my blog and then realized that I have already started to neglect it. It’s -8º outside today and I thought maybe I should write a post about how cold it is. Turns out my last post was about how cold it was that day.
Instead let me tell you that I am excited for the upcoming inauguration of our 44th president. change.gov has to be the coolest website any public official has ever launched in the history of the internet. This whole idea of open government seems to coincide with the changes that are happening all around us. Businesses are becoming more transparent, privacy is going away, and people are embracing their ability to communicate with the masses in an instant.
I learned about yesterday’s plane crash through twitter. The first images I saw of the incident were posted on twitpic.com. Next time we’ll be seeing live streaming footage on ustream.tv before any news station has a chance to pick up the “breaking news”. Times are definitely changing and it’s strange to be “cutting edge”.
My geek culture is going mainstream… I’m not sure how I feel about that yet.
