Anthony Gardiner of Wellington, New Zealand bought an engagement ring for his girlfriend, but she turned him down. He can’t return the ring and doesn’t want to keep it as he considers it bad luck, so he’s staging a treasure hunt!

Anyone keen to pick up the ring, valued at NZ$5,000 ($3,268), will need to be in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, on Saturday to join the hunt, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

Clues to the ring’s whereabouts will start being posted on social networking site Twitter (http:/twitter.com/donoogle_com) at 8 a.m. local time on Saturday (2000 GMT on Friday).

i found that guy through my reader (he's the one who did the funny jello and popcorn animations i posted elsewhere), and i just discovered he follows jon williams' (wizard is hungry) twitter.

i always figured that would happen sometime, worlds collide, convergence. nevertheless i'm shocked and sort of amazed now that it has.

also, some election returns, which even i know are dubious:

Taft, a town in the central province of Yazd, had a turnout of 141%, the site said, quoting an unnamed “political expert”. Kouhrang, in Chahar Mahaal Bakhtiari province, recorded a 132% turnout while Chadegan, in Isfahan province, had 120%.

The following is a short text on the situation in Iran by Ali Alizadeh, researcher at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, Middlesex University in London.

excerpt

...[twitter, facebook,youtube, etc.] have come to play a significant role in sending the messages and images of the movement to the outside world. However, the creative self-organization of the movement is using a manifold of methods and channels, many of them simple and traditional, depending on their availability: shouting ‘death to dictator’ from rooftops, calling landlines, at the end of one rally chanting the time and place of the next one, and by jeopardizing oneself by physically standing on streets and distributing news to every passing car. The appearance of the movement which is being sold by the media to the western gaze – the cyber-fantasy of the western societies which has already labelled our movement a twitter revolution, seems to have completely missed the reality of those bodies which are shot dead, injured or ready to be endangered by non-virtual bullets.

wait why

jergins, Monday, 27 July 2009 21:56 (ten years ago) link

cuz lots of people tweet trending topics just so they get their names on the list. they don't even say anything, just #trendingtopic1 #trendingtopic2, etc.

also the topics are mostly really dumb, like "poor joe jonas cried on stage cuz camilla broke up wit him"

don't mean to be a twitter snob. i just like it so much better when it's interesting, and not just about boring celebrities.

she's very upbeat, posts crowd pics that give a good sense of how many people are there.
