Another chance to win an iPod!

As promised, another Monday brings another question in our month-long iPod touch contest. Comment on the question below to gain another entry into the drawing for a grand prize!

After the death of Osama bin Laden last week, a lot of fake Facebook statuses and comments sprang up, as well as Twitter profiles. With social media today, it’s easy to find instant reactions to major events around the world. But before Facebook began in 2004 and Twitter was launched in 2006, we couldn’t see these reactions.

This week’s challenge is to name a major event in world news or pop culture in 2004 or earlier that you would have liked to see social media’s reactions for. Maybe you’ll see those ideas come to life on this blog in the future! Here’s an example of an entry: “2004: Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction’ at Super Bowl XXXVIII”

That would have been amazing! If his landing in America would have been broadcast, could you imagine the reactions back in Spain, the reactions of the Native Americans, and the reactions of Columbus/his crew?

@ChristopherColumbus -- Landed in the West Indies today. So nice to see solid ground!

@QueenIsabella - Finally!

@KingFerdinand - Find any gold yet?

@FrstMateGeorge - Ugh, my scurvy!
