As if we needed further proof in our always being recorded digital world, everything is on video. It almost doesn’t matter where or when, virtually everything is being recorded. There are people who worry about Google Glass and the fact that it can so easily take photos or video, but I would argue, if that bothers you, we are already there with a cell phone in virtually every pocket. It take a few more seconds to get it out, but in reality, we are all carrying around a portable broadcast station. A large fish tank at Disney World breaks, spilling water and fish everywhere, you better believe it’s on video.
Also, this morning a helicopter crashed in downtown Seattle. The first traditional media reports all used Twitter as their primary source for the story and images. We are the media, indeed.
