What a week for social media.

People jumping to conclusions based simply on what region criminals are from, criminals being apprehended from crowdsourced reddit threads and iphone photos, and people reporting news in an ongoing twitter-lanche that makes me question what journalism has become.

More on this later – I suspect, much later.

But for now, suffice it to say, that

“What did your twitter feed look like when the 2nd brother was captured.”

is no…

“Where were you when man walked on the moon, or when the Berlin wall fell.”

I’m thinking about the mediated experience today…and wondering if we’ve really progressed with all this technology.

But again, I suspect I’ll be writing about this all later.
