The power of technology

During the Michael Jackson memorial service today, Magic Johnson mentioned how Michael had his chef bring him a bucket of KFC for dinner one evening. Now, even four hours after the memorial, KFC is still a trending topic on Twitter--#6 to be exact.

One can't help but marvel about how technology has changed the way information travels. A few years ago, that "free commercial" would have been appreciated by the bigwigs at KFC, but that would have been the end of it. Today, however, that one moment has turned into hours and hours of invaluable promotion for the company. Tweets flying through cyberspace indicating that countless people now want KFC, or will have a KFC meal in honor of Michael Jackson.

I might buy into all that hype and have a bucket of extra crispy myself, were it not for the fact that I'm a vegetarian. Maybe I'll just get a biscuit.
