Myspace 1775 Style

"His (Paul Revere) famous "Midnight Ride" occurred on the night of April 18-19 1775, when he and William Dawes were chosen by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride inland from Charlestown to warn the militias at Lexington and Concord of the approach of British army troops from Boston."

In Honor of 231st anniversary of Paul Revere's midnight ride, I ponder this.

If the internet along with myspace existed in 1775, Paul Revere's midnight ride would have been cake.

Instead of jumping on his horse, riding into other hoods and then proceeding to yell, "The British are coming!" (actually according to wikipedia he yelled "The regulars are out!" makes me think of lost), he could have just jumped on to the internet.

Its midnight - Paul Revere checks his google RSS reader - his Reuters feed has a new article titled, "Redcoats halfway to America; planning to shut it down."

He opens a new tabbed window and signs-in, myspace. Patriot PREVE is logged in. He is disappointed he has no new comments or messages, but he knows he has more important things to worry about.
