twittervision is... mesmerizing. there's a difference between academically knowing that something is possible, and actually envisioning it coming to pass. if you'd asked me a decade ago, just a few years after the inception of the web, if one day I'd be able to look at a map of the world and see people's thoughts in real-time, I'd have said "sure, that could be done". but seeing it.
maybe this internet thing is going to do us some good eventually after all. it's easy to be blasé about things going on on the other side of the world to faceless people you don't know, but that's all changing.
