Modern tech and news
About an hour ago, we started to be very annoyed by a helicopter circling overhead. It was starting to get dark, and, when I saw it, it didn’t have anything particular in the way of searchlights on.
So, I got onto Twitter and started looking up items. It was just after peak for rush hour, so I checked http://twitter.com/AM730Traffic They didn’t have anything showing in our area, so it wasn’t their chopper.
I “follow” a number of news media, some in the local area. Didn’t take too long before I hit http://twitter.com/ctvbcbreaking/status/32975300048461824 (It must be their helicopter. They got three usable pictures, and kept the thing up there for over an hour. I guess it’s a slow news day, locally.) Since the murder is nearby, we recognized the location. In fact, from the pattern of identifiable stones, I was able to pinpoint the location as http://is.gd/neJzfP It’s about a block from our church. (The youth group is meeting tonight.) Subsequently, there were other reports from other sources.
(Like http://bit.ly/f3wVVX. Yeah, you could probably say that this is suspicious.)
