Webby 2.0

Today I have officially joined the ranks with the best(or worst) of them. Not only do I have a Facebook account that is constantly loaded and ready to post, tag and poke, but I've been attempting to use my Twitter account more. I have a youtube account, I have this blogger ridiculousness, I have a Skype account - and to add to them I've recently signed up for a Mobypicture account. With this I can now send one e-mail out and and all of these services will be updated with the media attachement; video...picutres the ultimate internet conneciton!

If you didn't feel like you knew me enough before - you will definitely know more of me than necessary now.

It's really interesting where the web has taken us. Writers on The Daily Show tend to make fun of the news media's usage and interaction with public opinion with CNN and Rick Sanchez at the front line of prosecution. I think it's great what they're doing. iReport may be one of the smartest things they could've done to obtain free news without even having to be there! Think about it - how awesome is it that thanks to Twitter the youths of Iran can have their voice heard? That we can be connected to what they're seeing with a simple media msg sent from their phone. It's what's inspired me to fully take advantage of the different ways to connect to social networks.

I want to share my experiences with people, good or bad. Never will we have to say "you had to be there to see it". All you need is a data usage plan or an internet connection and you'll have an up-to-the-minute posting.
