History in the Making.

If my last post was any indication– the capabilities and culture of online and digital media are incredible.

We were all on Facebook at some point last night. And we saw each other’s reactions to the breaking news of Osama Bin Laden’s death. They were good, inappropriate, and most frequently (in my case), hilarious.

As for those who, like me, live off campus at Fordham, you probably heard fellow students setting off fireworks and chants of ‘America’ and ‘USA’ down Hughes Avenue.  And I bet you heard or read somewhere on Facebook about Fordham’s rally to be held on Eddies 20 minutes after President Obama’s speech.

I don’t have to emphasize how significant this was. 

All I can add is that it all simply sums up everything about my blog. The world lives by and through its technologies. We connect to digital outlets almost constantly, in various ways, and often, continue to talk and think about them when we’re not connected.

It’s really something else.
