I met CNN's own Wolf Blitzer at the Winnipeg Press Club a few years ago.
He was nice enough to agree to a last-minute meeting with our students at Red River College's Creative Communications program; he spoke for half an hour or so and very patiently answered everyone's questions. Yay, Wolf.
Of course, all I can remember from the event was that he said he likes it in Winnipeg, he smells better than you'd think, and he has a very expensive haircut, which you don't really get to appreciate unless you see the guy in person...
Last night, CNN unveiled its new "hologram" technology, which - before our very eyes - instantly revealed the possible future of TV, videogames, elections, and (probably) pornography.
Check it out:
Please tell me that the blue glow around the hologram is a tribute to Carrie Fisher in Star Wars.
So, to summarize, the big stories of last night, as I rank them:
1. The first African American president elected in U.S. history;
2. We may be able to finally appreciate Wolf Blitzer's expensive haircut in the privacy of our own homes;
3. NBC shows a guy holding a sign saying "Bush, you're fired" for a very long time.
Has life just got a whole lot better or what?
