In case you have been living under a rock the past couple of hours and when you emerged from that rock you decided to check out Mike’s Bloggity Blog before any other “news” source, I have sad news for you. You really should be reading better websites, and yes, the winners of the Ipods have already been drawn.

Oh and Michael Jackson died.

Obviously, like the rest of the world, it was shocking to read the news. And for anyone that was on the internet around the time it was announced, it was truly an amazing thing to see. Major sites like google shutting down. Entertainment sites crashing and twitter seemingly has taken down searches and trending topics, for reasons unknown. The way people will remember “where they were”, will be completely different from similar moments like with the passings of JFK and Princess Diana or even 9/11.

These are truly interesting times we live in. I just don’t know if that is a good thing or not.
