Michael Jackson Death (A Twitter VS. CNN Finale)

twittercnn

It really kills me to know how many ignorant people are still out there!

It took a death of a great performer and a country wide demonstration to some of the ignorant crowed to finally think outside the bun, or to be more exact, to pull their head out of their asses!

It was about 4:25 PM on June 25th 2009 when I was reading my FriendFeed feeds!

Tamar, one of my favorite peeps from Twitter said the following:
“michael jackson and farrah fawcett are dancing together in heaven.”
!!
I was shocked and very sad that MJ, an icon that changed my and many others lives, was gone at only 50 years old.
Very sad!
People Michael Jackson
But it didn’t stop there, Twitter was noticeably slow for hours after the news, I read many tweets of people saying that it’s confirmed yet, I sent many text messages to close friends and 9 out of 10 said it’s not true! CNN didn’t say so!
Then to my other shock, I go see my neighbor (Who worked online for over 10 years) that says to me, I just checked CNN and it’s not true!
Now that’s a person who made living online for the past 10 years, yet again, he still rely on old fashion media! Wasn’t the Iran election enough to prove to him and everyone else that CNN is not the sh*t anymore?!
Really!
Who should I believe? People’s tweets, TMZ.com, the LA Times website, or just some failing news channel that’s always waiting to the last moment to make sure they don’t send fake news!
About an hour after hearing the news, @GaryVee mentioned that the LA Times and the LAPD confirmed it (On Twitter!), but for hours after that, people was still saying it was not confirmed yet!
I have also looked at the Wikipedia article and found the entire truth about the situation here.
I am not resting my case just yet, and I am truly saddened by the events and the lose of a great artist, but the case between Twitter and CNN is not over yet, and you know I will be writing more about it very soon.
RIP Michael Jackson.
Update: I have to add the following, although I stick with my point, but I also thought about the people that didn’t want to believe it at first (My Neighbor as an example) was just for the fact that they loved Michael Jackson, and their brains was set to not believing such great performer and at some cases their hero just died out of no where. With that being said, I say that this is life and it will just go on, and for Michael, he is still alive forever in the form of his music and performance.

While I was gone (GuruOfSales)

sleepin

While I (GuruOfSales The Blog) was gone, I was not just sleeping all the time!

As I promised in an earlier post, I will start posting a series of 20 or so articles that I have written within the last 3 months.

All the articles are related to events on the web and announcements within my projects.

I will include a note in the beginning of each article to point out that this is just a catch up series for those of you that did not catch the events as it happened, I will also include in each title a #hashtag (à la Twitter)
with a number at the end to indicate which article of the series it is. The #hashtag will be #WIWG (While I Was Gone), so, For example: Title: Google announced wave #WIWG #3.

I did keep it all short and sweet as promised.

For now, I have other stuff to do.

C U Soon 😉

We’re back again, With a new attitude!

fans

I am way too excited over this, it’s been almost 3 months I haven’t blogged here and the blog was down for some technical errors since we have moved it to it’s new home on the new dedicated server… But who cares? Right?

Well, I am back with a new attitude towards this blog, you may notice some changes here (Like the design and so on) but the main change is in the way I write and communicate with everyone.

Also, the office is gone, we may get a new one again by the winter time, but for now, I am blogging on the road (through my G1 phone), at the coffee shop (Gotta love net-books in Starbucks) and even from my bed!

I got involved in 3 big projects through the 3 months non-active here, 2 of them are done and the third one is going extremely strong, I am even more excited about the last project, that I can not wait (as I should) to share it with you, however I will only share hints until the project is ready to go into the lights, so for the next 15 days I’ll refer to it with the codename: Project W.

The first hint about Project W is that it has something to do with Blogger.com or WordPress.com but much much bigger than both combined!

Also, for those of you wondering about the school at ‘Wahol’ it is my absolute pleasure to announce that we have completed the beta period (Although it took us 2 extra weeks than what we have scheduled earlier) but it was a 100% success, well we only had 79 of the 100 initial members that actually completed the course all the way to the end.

The doors will be open again within the next 4 weeks, so just keep an eye out and you will get more details before you know it 🙂

Also, starting tomorrow, I will start a 2 weeks series of a (While I was gone) articles that I have wrote within the last 3 months and saved for later viewing, it’s mainly of what’s going on Online and some videos as well (About 20 short and sweet articles all together) and I hope you will like it.

To make sure you will not miss any update, just signup to get this blog by email (Link on top right corner) or get the RSS feed (We have a whole new server along with the power of feedburner) so please do signup for it (Like also on top right corner).

The one thing that I have to say, is how much I have missed everyone, although I have been very active on Facebook and Twitter, but I have missed you guys the most 🙂

Until next time (Hopefully in less than 3 months!) 🙂

Cheers!
