I was on Twitter today trying to gain inspiration, or some sort of motivation for this blog post I said I was going to write in regards to being a part of Twitter during the election. But, while I was on Twitter @bbonndesign tweeted to @juliaroy that @aarondignan had mentioned her in a speech he gave at at interesting new york. I know it’s a lot of tweetings and tweeters to keep in mind, but there is a light at the end of the tweet… watch this video on how “an entire generation is growing up seeing life as a game”
I used to work for @aarondignan at Undercurrent when I first started this blog last year, and can easily say it’s those guys that got me started in the interactive world- they’re awesome; extremely smart and cutting edge thinkers…so watch the video and learn something:)!

Last night while my friends were out making party at bars, in Time Square, at election parties in every nook and cranny of New York, I was at home dorking out. Yup. I was on Twitter non-stop, I was facebooking, I was watching current tv, I was reading blogs…oh yeah and I had the tv on too. I was tuned in, plugged in, and communicating about it all with as many people as I could.
I have so much to write about as far as what I experienced, the communication that happened, and how exciting it was to be a part of this election in cyberspace, but to begin I’ll start with the shallow ‘omfg it’s me!’ part:
election night 2008 on Gawker
Thats right…I was on Gawker last night. While tweeting with fellow nerds I came across a link. Gawker was asking for election night party photos, and although I lacked the party part of that request, I was still watching the election…so why not, right? I sent in a random photobooth picture I took in about 30 seconds, not thinking it would actually get posted, but I’m guessing their submission level was extremely low (as most people were not sitting at home blogging, micro-blogging, and social networking on this historic night). So, low and behold they posted it! HA. Please take a moment to laugh at the ridiculousness of this photo, especially after knowing that there were absolutely no substances involved, just a lot of dorking out:)
The election night on Twitter is my next subject, but my screen shots are on my other computer, so that post will have to wait.
I heard about this site from a tweet on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ ; CommandShift3: http://commandshift3.com/ is a website that, like in the description, is a sort of hot or not for virtual geeks. It can be the most gorgeous website you’ve ever seen and you’re jsut thankful you’re finally seeing it, or it can be a poorly made site that lacks any creativity at all (kind of like mine!-sorry about that guys…I’m working on it). There is so much content and so many sites to look through that browsing can suck you in for hours. But, there are ways to sift through the entries; You can look at the best and worst sites daily, weekly, monthly, and all time. If you even have 10 min. of free time in front of your computer, take a look! Trust me when I say, CommandShift3 will bring prettyness into your digital life that you only hope existed in our cyber space of words and white screens. Big thumbs up from me!
