It’s interesting to see how instant communication can change our world…on a larger scale and in a very up close and personal way. The Mercury News out of Silicon Valley recently ran a story with the headline U.C. Berkeley student’s Twitter messages alerted world to his arrest in Egypt. Whether or not Twitter was responsible for getting help to the Berkley student (other media sources say it’s because he had a cell phone), the fact is that we do have access to instant communication whether that is through Twitter, a cell phone, Instant Messenger, email on your iphone or blackberry or taking a quick photo with your cell and then downloading it to the internet.  At any given moment, what we do could be put out there for all the world to see. Unedited. Unapproved. And sometimes Unflattering. We live in interesting times.
