It’s 2pm Eterna-a-a-a-all. Day 27 of My Favorite Things: Globalization

Day 27 of My Favorite Things: Globalization

Today I did a global experiment. I have friends in all parts of the world. I asked them – via my Facebook page – to take a picture with their phone at 2pm Eastern Standard Time and email it to me. What you see below is the result.

I think it is so cool that I posted this request from my bed in New York at 9am this morning and was able to reach people in all corners of the world immediately. Can you believe there was a time when you could only write letters? Or make expensive long distance phone calls? It amazed me that with the push of a button I got to all of you. Pretty cool, right? Our kids will grow up in a world knowing nothing but this. Amazing. Thank you for your help today.
