I'm In A Hurry And Don't Know Why!

Well, CBS found out the hard way that patience may be a virtue in reporting news from Twitter.  The case of the (now) late Joe Paterno.  They picked up a story from a source they thought they could trust and it burned them.  Geez, how would you like to have been one of JoePa's family members??  How sad.

Maybe Dan Rather could apply for the job or maybe next time the over-zealous media could just take a step back and think for a minute? 

Now, this has also happened locally.  I had posted several things on my Facebook page that were "newsy" and the local media in Hampton and Northern Iowa had picked it up as news -- but at least it was factual, but still didn't stop one media outlet from receiving a verbal lashing from someone who was quoted from my post.

Anyway -- Think before you re-post, re-tweet or copy and paste.

SOPA/PIPA - "Blacked Out Sites"

So today is the day that some webpages have decided to go dark to raise awareness of people who pirate music/movies/etc, basically stuff that isn't their stuff.  I see that Google has thrown into this as well, but not enough to go "all in" -- Gee, they would HATE to lose that ad revenue and shift the searching to Bing or other search engines.

The Obama administration has said repeatedly that it's not right for the piracy of movies and other entertainment, but also said that this bill will get vetoed.  Odd, why can't anyone believe that? 

Until the internet quits making money for people, it will be fair game for everyone.... and maybe it's time to create some ORIGINAL content anyway, instead of stealing other people's stuff.  Now there's an idea!
