It’s coming from SPACE

A while back, Punya shared this Louis CK video. Whenever I get impatient with pages loading or the “wheel spinning” I think of this clip (forward to 1:58):

Today, an amazing thing happened – from space.

While many found it funny, my mind was blown at so many levels.  I’ve been listening to quite a bit of CBC radio and the morning show is always talking about Commander Hadfield & his tweets. People can tweet him and he’s taking pictures of Canadian cities as he orbits.  We’re living in a time where astronauts tweet. Anyone can talk to him, and he will respond, from space. WILLIAM SHATNER can tweet him, and he will respond,  from space. It was one of those moments that brought into sharp focus the tremendous changes I’ve seen in my lifetime and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead.
