Cognoscor Ergo Sum

I just couldn’t pass up not posting this one. On Tuesday night’s The Word, Stephen Colbert did a great piece about just how invasive social networking is becoming, citing new websites for sharing credit card purchases and sharing where people made love as crazy–but true–examples. Nevertheless, his word is a true and telling sign of the times: “I am known, therefore I am.” Just watch and get a good laugh.

Our next episode will be out next week. Last Saturday’s snowstorm caused a power outage at ATV’s studio which prevented us from filming, but we will have full analysis of Apple’s iPad and much more coming on our next episode.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
