‘ At BlogCon, there was a bar night, and someone complained of not being able to get a signal, and then said, “But all the cool people have a signal, I’m sure.”
Gabe and I both said at the same time: “All the cool people aren’t checking to see if they have a signal at all.”‘

Ace’s post was about some congressional staffers who used Twitter to write extremely unprofessional comments about their boss & their job over a few months. Unsurprisingly, they got fired (what I wonder is why it took so long for someone to notice they were doing this).
It’s a short post with a rant well worth reading about people trying to stay connected to the internet all day every day. 🙂
