Tell me about it. During his speech, there was literally a 26-minute gap in Tweets. Not one person out of the over 500 I follow updated.

It is truly refreshing to have a President who embraces technology. He'll be the first President with a Blackberry, lead the first administration to have a -gasp- blog, and let's not forget the actual components of the technology platform he ran on during the campaign.

I'm especially looking forward to where he goes with his plans to strengthen the nation's broadband deployment. It surprised me to learn the U.S. is 15th in the world for broadband deployment. There are still so many in the country who either do not have access or have access so slow it's not even worth using in the first place.
