Another Icon, gone.

The communication that has exchanged in the past hour surrounding Michael Jackson’s (now confirmed) death is another example of the power of tweets, RTs, and other forms or short message communications. Watching the conversations flow from the citing of the same TMZ article to more and more confirmations of MJ’s untimely death was surreal and I had to keep exchanging updates with coworkers and FB and Twitter friends just to make sure we had the most recent info. Media is powerful. And I didn’t have to turn on a TV or radio to figure out what was going on.
