Real Time Overload: CNN Under fire in Tikrit

Whoa, whoa in the midst of a realtime reality + data overload. Flying from SF to NY, Jet Blue, watching CNN, live via satellite from Tikrit. Brent Sadler venturing outside of western controlled Iraq and heading in Saddam's hometown of Tikrit. Crazy stuff as gripping and tense as any movie. If you haven't heard yet Sadler was lead into Tikrit after hearing that it was no longer under Saddam's control. After one tense encounter, he was shot at while leaving the city. Watching live was intense, a long calm as he explored abandoned military complexes on the outskirts of the town. Then a raw and frightening race away from machine gun fire. CNN had an armed guard actually firing back, is that a violation of journalistic ethics.

Crazy thing to watch, and watching it live on an airplane high over Wyoming made it stranger still. Complete satellite overload. And now I'm typing this into my phone to make it even close to the edge of the datasphere. Just a small taste of a strange future my friends.
