Poor Michael Jackson had just died... RIP.

That was the weirdest hour, just there - Facebook status updates announcing a death that the BBC was denying, and all the news sites reporting on comas and ambulances while the punters on twitter were writing mini-obits. A crazy conglomeration of media. How horrific that would be if you were on the other end of it - countless people hovering over the potential carnage of your death, trying to get the scoop... Morbid. Not that I'm immune - here I am writing about it. Twisted. It's a messed-up non-linear world.

We should all have a big disco party right now.
