Reading back over the previous post here, I am somewhat uncomfortably reminded of an episode of The Goon Show.
In the episode, Tales of Men’s Shirts, they very quickly describe the beginning of World War II,
[GERMAN VOICE]: Bang!
MAJOR BLOODNOK: Bang? War! I must write my memoirs! (sound of typing) The day war broke, I said to Allenbrooke, “You fool....”
While I stand by what I said about the virtues of ’blogs and Twitter when the unexpected happens, suddenly the idea of checking on one’s loved-ones first, then immediately Twittering about the event, and then ’blogging about Twittering about it sounds embarrassingly close to that scene from the Goons.
I don’t have a problem though. I could give up any time I want.
