Hi all,

This week's poll question is about the Library of Congress' plans to archive every twitter entry. Discuss here what you think about this concept, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

I'd rather see 'em pick up trash by the side of the road.

Slightly OT...

You may have heard of the recent incident with Jerry Jones being caught on video discussing Bill Parcells and Tim Tebow.

David Stern (NBA Commissioner) was on the Mike and Mike show this morning and they asked him for his thoughts on Twitter, YouTube, cell phone cameras and all the other technology that has changed the face of sports.

He said that his staff monitors every tweet sent by NBA players and on occasion his office has had to call players and "discuss" what was said. It's his way of letting them know that they need to be careful because the world is watching and listening.

You can't make the technology go away, so you have make sure you use it in a way that doesn't embarrass yourself, your team or the league.

Correct me if I am wrong but would this not require storage space to be updated constantly? This means someone has to be paid to do this, storage devises have to be maintained, people have to be paid for that. For this to be of any real use it would have to in some way be cataloged, more people getting paid.


$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
MORE TAXES!!!!!! Hurrrrraaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!!


This does not sound like a good idea to me. I can't for the life of me see how this can be truly helpful to anyone other than to create controversy and sell newspapers. If they are paying for it then I am all for it. I don't buy the paper anyway.

I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.
